Product Details


“Kelly Link’s stories wriggle under your skin and take up a permanent home there, and somehow you’re grateful to be infested. White Cat, Black Dog is an enchanting collection from one of the most astonishingly funny, unsettling, insightful, and brilliant writers of our time.”—Kiersten White, New York Times bestselling author of Hide

“If I could find a way to use every superlative in a never-ending Borges-ian Carter-esque sentence, I would. Kelly Link’s stories are generous with their intellect, wit, humanity, and the hope and dread of what was, of what might be, of what is. White Cat, Black Dog is a marvel.”—Paul Tremblay, author of A Head Full of Ghosts and The Pallbearers Club

“Kelly Link’s stories are spooky and funny, grounded and floating, and, as always, completely her own. There is no mistaking a story by Kelly Link. This book is sublime.”—Emma Straub, author of This Time Tomorrow

“With White Cat, Black Dog, Kelly Link puts her sui generis magic to work on the older magic of fairy tales, forging something revelatory. These stories delight and terrify us, and seem to say, Yes, this is the way the world works—haven’t you been paying attention? I am now. What a glorious and bewitching gift this book is.”Clare Beams, author of The Illness Lesson

“Reading Kelly Link is stepping onto a slide that spirals you down into the heart of the kaleidoscope, splashes you into a technicolor fairy tale, and makes you either smile wide enough that you cry, or the other way around. Her storytelling is wondrous and fanciful, full of longing and terror.”—Stephen Graham Jones, author of My Heart Is a Chainsaw

“These seven mischievous, nimble, joyful, wise, awe-inspiring, soul-enriching, positively Linkian fairy tales will make you feel like you’re discovering the power of stories for the very first time, and will expand your capacity for enchantment in our jaded world. White Cat, Black Dog is a book I will read, reread, and treasure all my life.”—Jessamine Chan, author of The School for Good Mothers

“White Cat, Black Dog is a glorious book, full of grand journeys across times, lives, and realities. These are big stories, tales you dive into, live inside, and come out the other end changed. Kelly Link is the Alice Munro of the fantastic, and we readers are so lucky to have more of her writing in our lives.”—Victor LaValle, author of Lone Women
