Orange World

Orange World Karen Russell

'I loved Orange World... a collection of short stories in which demons live in drains, bog women come back from the dead and trees can grow inside the human body' Daisy Johnson, New Statesman

Karen Russell comes a stunning story collection that showcases her irresistible gifts of language and imagination. Russell's comedic genius and talent for creating outlandish predicaments that uncannily mirror our inner lives are on display in these unforgettable stories.

In 'The Bad Graft', a couple on a road trip stop in Joshua Tree National Park, where the spirit of a giant tree accidentally infects the young woman, their fates becoming permanently entangled. In 'The Prospectors' two opportunistic young women fleeing the Depression strike out for new territory, but find themselves fighting for their lives. In the brilliant and hilarious title story a new mother desperate to ensure her baby's safety strikes a deal with the devil to protect her baby.

  • 'One of our most original short story writers... Russell has impeccable command of her form' New York Times Book Review
  • Superbly crafted...the weird and the outlandish exist side-by-side with everyday concerns... Russell is among the most skilled of this generation’s fabulist writers. In her surreal worlds, life is passing strange, but it is not devoid of wry comfort Nilanjana Roy, Financial Times
