Heaven of Animals

Heaven of Animals

“The Heaven of Animals is an extraordinary debut from Florida author David James Poissant - a Venn diagram of the miraculous and the absurd. Like Flannery O'Connor, Poissant’s stories are marked by violence, humor, and grace; like Saunders, Poissant can spoon-bend reality; like Carver and Diaz, he writes scenes soaked in kerosene and seconds from combustion. In these pages you'll find charming reprobates and self-deluded hustlers, young lovers, alligators and dead dogs, fathers and sons, all the warped love of family, the batshit hilarity of the South, and the 'geometry" of loss.”— Karen Russell Pulitzer Prize-finalist author of Swamplandia
