"The dazzling short pieces collected in 'Slipping', which range from reportage to tender bits of personal reflection to weird sci-fi horror, together serve to confirm the impression Beukes already created in her novels: this is a writer who can do anything." Ben H. Winters, author of 'Underground Airlines"
"Bold, brazen, and brilliant - now this is a collection to die for. Beukes fearlessly skewers personal relationships, social injustice and pop culture (among other things), and every story is a masterclass in flair, wit, and fresh ideas." Sarah Lotz, author of "The Three" and "Day Four"
Lauren Beukes is the author of "Broken Monsters", "The Shining Girls", "Zoo City" and "Moxyland" She has received the Arthur C. Clarke Award, the University of Johannesburg Prize, and the Strand Critics Award. She lives in Cape Town.Beukes (L.)
