Fen is a liminal land. Real people live their lives here. They wrestle with familiar instincts, with sex and desire, with everyday routine. But the wild is always close at hand, ready to erupt. This is a place where animals and people commingle and fuse, where curious metamorphoses take place, where myth and dark magic still linger. So here a teenager may starve herself into the shape of an eel. A house might fall in love with a girl. A woman might give birth to a well what?

Johnson's poetic stories are strange and beautiful. I was reminded of Kelly Link or Karen Russell. Unusual, dark plots jolted me into alertness and pulled me into a world all new. Johnson draws connections between characters, settings, and even movie references, giving the stories a unifying thread that pulled the collection together. This is one I'll definitely want to reread.
