about

My Goat Ate Its Own Legs: Tales for Adults by Alex Burrett is a debut collection of tales that explores the weird what-ifs of evolution, devotion, and universal disaster.

"Burrett's imagination is as fertile as that of Jorge Luis Borges's, and he's more readable, and funnier." &#8212The Independent on Sunday (London)

In a voice so unfailingly chipper it's suspicious, Alex Burrett poses in fiction some disturbing yet certainly possible futures for the human race (and other ambitious, earthbound mammals). Always ready with an impeccable phrase or a sly wink, he shares tales of the most darkly ironic sort, including a field report from a human abattoir, a chronicle of dating Death, and, of course, the tale of the goat that ate its own legs. The thirty-one bizarre, insightful, and morbidly hilarious tales in My Goat Ate Its Own Legs: Tales for Adults will delight anyone who doesn't take life (or death) too seriously.
