Like some newly discovered newt or loris that alters our view of an entire species, Bright Shards of Someplace Else is strange and thrilling and very beautiful. I loved these stories.”

—DANIEL OROZCO, author of Orientation and other Stories

Faulty Predictions is, as the name suggests, about all of the ways we expect more or less than we should from other people—parents, friends, lovers—as well as ourselves. The people who inhabit these stories are complicated, struggling, and often hilarious. Karin Lin-Greenberg offers everything I come to fiction hoping for—engaging narrators, precise observation, surprise, and finally compassion for the ways in which we are, all of us, flawed. Readers, you are in for a treat.”

—LORI OSTLUND, author of The Bigness of the World
