Toad is a gift to those of us who have been dreaming for decades of a new novel from Katherine Dunn, and a book that will bring her many devoted new fans. Nobody's sentences heave and breathe like Dunn's do. Her language scintillates and sheds its scales, revealing truths that nobody else dares to utter, or can. She is Portland's bard of “the genuine wound,” exploring the deep world within the body and the human animal's capacities for savagery, tenderness, loneliness, friendship, loathing, and love.”
—Karen Russell, Pulitzer Prize-winning author of Orange World
