About the Author

Kellie Wells is the author of a previous collection of short fiction, Compression Scars, which was the winner of the Flannery O'Connor Award, and two novels, Skin and Fat Girl, Terrestrial, a finalist for the Paterson Prize in Fiction. Her work has appeared in the Kenyon Review, Ninth Letter, the Fairy Tale Review, and was selected for inclusion in the 2010 Best American Fantasy. A congenital Midwesterner, she currently lives in Tuscaloosa, where she is associate professor of English at the University of Alabama.


Ms. Wells is the only writer currently residing on earth who can be trusted to write serious fiction about God, death, and the suffering body-to say nothing of Little Miss Time-as adorable cartoon characters. Her language is at once fey and surgically precise. She is a philosopher who mines and undermines the commonplaces and popular ideas of her day like a news-addled mole wearing a diamond headlamp. She is one of a kind in her generation, maybe in any generation, and should be as famous as Isadora Duncan and Annie Oakley, whom she somewhat resembles." - Jaimy Gordon, winner of the National Book Award for her novel, Lord of Misrule "It's all about scale, these transformative and transforming fictions by the professional protean Kellie Wells. These stories ratchet and zoom by powers of ten from the micro- to the telo-scopic and incorporate colors outside the range of sight, stimuli beyond the thresholds of our numb and numberless senses. The tales of God, the Moon, and Other Megafauna disturb, distort, derange, delight. Mad Italianate visionaries-Calvino, Fellini, Galileo-are let loose, unbounded and bountiful, on the flat vernacular graphing paper of the American Middlewest. This work is universal and individually intimate, horizontal and vertical, containing multitudes and more." - Michael Martone, author of Michael Martone and co-author of Winesburg, Indiana: A Fork River Anthology
