'I wake up and I have to make the right choice,' he said.
Master-stylist Ben Marcus returns with a wonder-cabinet of brain-rearranging stories.
From the horrifyingly strange to the deeply touching, each story is a literary masterclass unlikely to leave the reader unchanged.
From parent/child relationships thrown agonisingly off kilter, to intensely moving scenarios of dependence and emotional crisis; from left-alone bodies to new scientific frontiers, Ben Marcus is the great chronicler of the contemporary uncanny and the peculiar future.
Piece by piece, he takes us apart.
