A weird book, indeed, to say the least. Dark and desturbing at times. Painfully whimsical. I read three stories and didn’t survive the tragedy of cloned Nuriyevs in Canada by mad doctors from the USSR.

A weird, quirky but thoroughly accessible collection of stories, many of which have the feel of fairytales.

I've said the gist of this quote from the Toronto Star before but they say it best: "[O'Neill] writes like a sort of demented angel with an uncanny knack for metaphor." A knack is definitely putting it lightly. Anything I read of hers I love just because of the descriptions and the sheer absurdity of the images and stories going on here. I enjoy her novels a bit more but by no means should you skip this weird collection of stories if you're a fan of hers. We've got cloned Russians, robots, a gypsy who isn't really a gypsy, and Montreal in ways you've never seen it. Definitely not to be missed.

A good collection of whimsical and not so whimsical stories, some of which gave me the warm fuzzies. Recommend for an introduction to this author.

It look like the title should be Daydreams of Angels. Is Dear Piglet the title of one of the short stories?

We one saw a baby deer and it looked like it had just learned to walk, like it was wearing leather cowboy boots that it hadn't had a chance to break in. The raccoons were all wearing their sunglasses.
