Praise For The Orange Eats Creeps

"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
