Vampires in the Lemon Grove: Stories

Unabridged Audiobook

Publisher: Random House (Audio)

Duration: 9 hours 14 minutes

Summary:

From the author of the instant New York Times best seller Swamplandia! (a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize), a dazzling new collection of stories that showcases Karen Russell's gifts at their inimitable best.

In the collection's marvelous title story, two aging vampires in a sun-drenched Italian lemon grove find their hundred-year marriage tested when one of them develops a fear of flying. In 'The Seagull Army Descends on Strong Beach, 1979,' a dejected teenager discovers that the universe is communicating with him through talismanic objects left in a seagull's nest. 'Proving Up' and 'The Graveless Doll of Eric Mutis'--stories of children left to fend for themselves in dire predicaments--find Russell veering into more sinister territory, and ultimately crossing the line into full-scale horror. In 'The New Veterans,' a massage therapist working with a tattooed war veteran discovers she has the power to heal by manipulating the images on his body. In all, these wondrous new pieces display a young writer of superlative originality and invention coming into the full range and scale of her powers.
