"The stories collected in Heart-Shaped Hole all deal with the cataclysmic impact of emotions and relationships in Billy’s hometown Trip City where he and his opponent and ally in love, Jane Legit, battle it out and bond as allies. Their mysterious magnetic connection to the fate of their town, where wars in love mean destruction for the populace and harmony means peaceful prosperity, is akin to magic realism, or perhaps a permeable relationship between the realm of the subconscious and the consciously experienced world."
"you’ll experience quite a range of themes that cluster around the more imposing structure of action, struggle, and attraction, such as the role of technology in altering a sense of identity, the relationship between the individual and society, the impact and influence of the subconscious on our lives and actions, and preserving a sense of wonder in our existence. It’s an immensely rewarding read, deeply honest and wildly imaginative."
