There are times when you want to read a soothing, comforting work. And there are times when you want to be taken, shaken and have your brain turned around. A perfect author for the latter times is John Kessel and his new collection The Baum Plan for Financial Independence and Other Stories is just the ticket for this mind rush.

From official release/information:

Book Description: "A superb satirist with a keen eye for detailing the human spirit."-Philadelphia Inquirer

"Stories that liberate the mind."-The New York Times Book Review

A long-awaited collection that intersects imaginatively with Pride and Prejudice, Frankenstein, The Wizard of Oz, and Flannery O'Connor. Includes John Kessel's modern classic sequence about life on the moon.
