Song for the Deaf

Songs for the Deaf is a joyful, deranged, endlessly surprising book of stories that defy easy categorization, in addition to the laws of physics (girls ”ride air,” aliens plummet from the sky, a basketball-messiah shoots hoops). Fleming’s prose is glorious music; his rhythms will get into your bloodstream, and his images will sink into your dreams.
—Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia! and Vampires in the Lemon Grove
