about

* National Book Foundation's '5 Under 35' Selection.* NPR Best Books of 2010: A Hidden Gem.* The Believer Book Award Finalist.The exhilaration of such a novel is nearly beyond calculation. If a new literature is at hand then it might as well begin here."-Steve Erickson, from his Introduction"The book feels written in a fever; it is breathless, scary and like nothing I've ever read before. Krilanovich's work will make you believe that new ways of storytelling are still emerging from the margins."- NPR.org "Grace Krilanovich's first book is a steamy cesspool of language that stews psychoneurosis and viscera into a horrific new organism - the sort of muck in which Burroughs, Bataille, and Kathy Acker loved to writhe."- The Believer It's the '90s Pacific Northwest refracted through a dark mirror, where meth and madness hash it out in the woods. . . . A band of hobo vampire junkies roam the blighted landscape-trashing supermarket breakrooms, praying to the altar of Poison Idea and GG Allin at basement rock shows, crashing senior center pancake breakfasts-locked in the thrall of Robitussin trips and their own wild dreams.A girl with drug-induced ESP and an eerie connection to Patty Reed (a young member of the Donner Party who credited her survival to her relationship with a hidden wooden doll), searches for her disappeared foster sister along "The Highway That Eats People," stalked by a conflation of Twin Peaks ' "Bob" and the Green River Killer, known as Dactyl.With a scathing voice and penetrating delivery, Grace Krilanovich's The Orange Eats Creeps is one of the most ferocious debut novels in memory.Grace Krilanovich has been a MacDowell colony fellow and a finalist for the Starcherone Prize."
Grace Krilanovich is a MacDowell Colony fellow and was a National Book Foundation 5 Under 35" honoree for 2010. She lives in Los Angeles."

Grace Krilanovich's first book is a steamy cesspool of language that stews psychoneurosis and viscera into a horrific new organism-the sort of muck in which Burroughs, Bataille, and Kathy Acker loved to writhe."- The Believer "Krilanovich's work will make you believe that new ways of storytelling are still emerging from the margins."- NPR.org "One of 2010's small-press triumphs."- The Week " The Orange Eats Creeps contains the hallucinatory, disjointed, plotless, yet bizarrely charming ravings of a young refugee from foster care who now belongs to a pack of teenage hobo vampires that rove convenience stores and supermarkets high on Robitussin and mop buckets of coffee."- Newsday "
