Publisher Description

From the author of the novel Swamplandia!—a finalist for the Pulitzer Prize—comes a magical and uniquely daring collection of stories that showcases the author’s gifts at their inimitable best.

Within these pages, a community of girls held captive in a Japanese silk factory slowly transmute into human silkworms and plot revolution; a group of boys stumble upon a mutilated scarecrow that bears an uncanny resemblance to a missing classmate that they used to torment; a family’s disastrous quest for land in the American West has grave consequences; and in the marvelous title story, two vampires in a sun-drenched lemon grove try to slake their thirst for blood and come to terms with their immortal relationship.

Left hanging

I only got about half way through this collection of short stories. The stories themselves aren't bad, except that none of them has any sort of resolution at the end. They just end abruptly, leaving the reader hanging. Something like finishing the salad and your waiter comes out and says "Sorry, but the cook just quit, so you won't be getting your steak."
