Product Details

Praise

“Minutely detailed events and conversations are progressively undercut with singsong variations of “This is what should have happened…. This is what did happen.” In the sickening blur of Stevie’s narrative, what “really” happens is both uncertain and obvious; the details she commands so confidently are infinitely mutable, but the gruesome consequences slowly become apparent. With outstanding control, Warren manipulates Stevie’s voice to create a portrait of horror that in no way reads like a first novel.” – Publisher’s Weekly (starred review and Pick of the Week)

“The best horror of 2009” – Genreville (Publishers Weekly’s genre blog, referring to previous edition)

“I’ve never seen anyone capture sordid human nature so clearly. I was completely drawn in, totally immersed. I felt ill much of the time.” – Russell Kirkpatrick

“Simply gut-wrenching” – John Courtenay Grimwood, SFX (June 2008)

“There comes a time when you know, during your reading of a book, that it is going to have a profound effect on you, in terms of its engaging writing and also the message it delivers… Slights by Kaaron Warren can be added to this list.” – Mark Deniz, Dark Fiction Review

It’s a creepy kind of horror novel, the kind of sublime read that gets under your skin and leads you to distraction… It’s laudably original and Warren’s acerbic writing style is equally poetic and twisted.” – Paul Goat Allen, Unabashedly Bookish: The BN Community Blog

“… a brilliantly written book that will not allow you to walk away from it. This is psychological horror at its very best.” – Shroud Magazine Book Reviews

“Scarier than Hitchcock, Peckinpah, early Stephen King, Barker et al, and with the sort of dark un-PC humour the Coen Brother’s and John Waters would probably kill for.”
