'A Man Made Entirely of Bats' is a collection of short stories and flash fiction by one of Australia's newest voices. Comedic and absurd, these stories are an entertaining exploration of the concept of super heroes and of the super strange in our world. 'Featuring a colourful assortment of superheroes, mutants, zombies, bank robbers and boy bands - these stories are wonderfully bizarre, original and hilarious. A new and original voice, Patrick Lenton's short stories bring qualities rare in Australian fiction; inventiveness, humour, and a fine sense of the absurd.' RYAN O'NEILL 'I love Patrick's stories because he seems to think a bit differently to everybody else. Do not read this on the bus if you have a primal fear of laughing loudly in front of strangers.'

Reviews

" Featuring a colourful assortment of superheroes, mutants, zombies, bank robbers and boy bands these stories are wonderfully bizarre, original and hilarious. A new and original voice, Patrick Lenton's short stories bring qualities rare in Australian fiction; inventiveness, humour, and a fine sense of the absurd." Ryan O'Neill, author, "The Weight of a Human Heart"" "Lenton careens wildly across genres and draws on elements of surrealism, horror, fairytale, stand-up comedy, and pulp fiction to generate tiny worlds that are surprising, original, and frequently hilarious. . . .There are echoes of David Sedaris' surreal animal fables Squirrel Seeks Chipmunk. Like Sedaris, Lenton is hugely entertaining, which renders occasional moments of emotional tenderness all the more poignant." --Bookseller + Publisher "'Featuring a colourful assortment of superheroes, mutants, zombies, bank robbers and boy bands - these stories are wonderfully bizarre, original and hilarious.
