THE FAMILY UNIT AND OTHER FANTASIES is a superb collection of darkly comic, largely fantastical stories set in our jittery, polarized, increasingly impersonal age. Whether it's the tale of a corporation that buys a man's family . . . two mysterious survivors of a superstorm who are given shelter by a gullible couple . . . an erotic adventure set during an urban terrorist alert . . . or the entire life of a determined and heedless mouse set against a pitiless universe . . . these stories are by turn funny and frightening, uncanny and unnerving.

Editorial Reviews

Praise for Wasteland:"A Lord of the Flies for future generations, Wasteland is an irresistible and complex novel that I just couldn't put down." -KarinSlaughter, New York Times bestselling author". . . Klavan's world-building enticingly tricklesthrough the brutal, fast-paced, multilayered plot, which is fueled by a sweet romance between brooding Caleb and spunky Esther and plenty of mysteries. . . ." -BooklistPraise for Brain Camp:"Smart, disgusting fun . . . sly social commentary with a fizzy dash of stomach-lurching horror."-Kirkus Reviews"A throwback to the kind of paranoia that Rosemary's Baby and The Stepford Wives capitalized on . . . Kim and Klavan, who balanced adventure and kids' social issues so well in City of Spies (2010), do the same in another well-rounded adventure here, as the far-out (and kind of gross) climax mixes with genuine insight into dealing with parents, fitting into a new crowd, and handling the pressures of performance." -Booklist
