Vampires in the Lemon Grove

In a godforsaken barn, Presidents Eisenhower, John Adams and Rutherford B Hayes are bemused to find themselves reincarnated as horses. Clyde and Magreb - he a traditional capes-and-coffins vampire, she the more progressive variety - settle in an Italian lemon grove in the hope that its ripe fruit will keep their thirst for blood at bay.

Her novel, Swamplandia!, was longlisted for the 2011 Orange Prize and shortlisted for the 2012 Pulitzer Prize.

Zitat
"Her work has a velocity and a trajectroy that is little less than dazzling and a tough, enveloping, exhilarating voice than cannot be equaled." Joy Williams, New York Times "Wildly fun and full of suspense" -- Jess Holland Observer "Russell can take Antarctic tailgaters, an army of seagulls or simply a window and twist a tale that explodes on the page and lingers in the mind" -- Fiona Wilson The Times "These stories use the fantastical to make mythic sense of the human struggle, and perfectly balance light and dark, funny and serious, wacky and realistic" -- Suzi Feay Financial Times "A consistently arresting, frequently stunning collection...Even more impressive than Russell's critically acclaimed novel." Kirkus Reviews
