Praise For Alice In Wonderland Syndrome

“There could be no more apt title for Meg Pokrass’s collection of brilliant and brilliantly disquieting flash fictions than ‘Alice in Wonderland Syndrome’, a condition in which objects appear larger or smaller than they should. Pokrass’s stories are so much greater than their word count, entire worlds, but they also make the tiniest moments vital, enormous. Here, people – and, once, a rat – are on the edges of things; there is no settling in these worlds, as in ours, and animals are often more reassuring than humans. Is the ‘she’ who recurs in the stories Alice herself, or many Alices? Or is she us, trying to find our footing, to shrink and to grow, to restore some balance in a world that is forever tilting?”
– Tania Hershman, author of Some of Us Glow More Than Others

“‘…there is always a story inside a story inside a dog…’ With dreamlike clarity, these beautifully choreographed stories slip, delve and spiral in and out of the quotidian and the surreal with such deftness and precision that like Alice in her wonderland, suddenly you find yourself catching your breath in the light and dark of a world both familiar and yet deliciously unsettling. Pokrass has once again produced an exquisite collection for our enjoyment.”
– Mary-Jane Holmes, author of Heliotrope with Matches and Magnifying Glass
