"Queen of Gonzo" [Leslie] What drags love out of its gooey, schmaltzy rut and takes it for a joyride in this exuberant collection of 17 stories...No matter how brief or long, no matter how bizarre, each tale in this collection grabs readers and demands they rethink how they see all the myriad forms of love." - Publisher's Weekly Starred Review CRAZY LOVE is crazy good! Leslie What's brain is evidently crowded with strangeness, awfulness, wonderfulness, wildness, madness of all kinds...and love. Lots of love. How lucky we are that her imagination runs deep, runs true, runs onto the page in crazily beautiful stories-and lucky, so very lucky, to be holding those stories right now in our hands." - Molly Gloss, author of Dazzle of Day and Heart of Horses "If unbearable guilt makes you wish to suffer vicariously, and professionally, for others; if you suddenly find yourself the father of thousands and thousands of children; if your ambition is to occupy the Chair of Hermit Studies at the University of Oregon, or to be a ghost in a hot-air balloon, or if you have considered wearing a gorilla mask while having an abortion - CRAZY LOVE is your operating manual. These seventeen achingly funny and hilariously sad stories will give you invaluable advice on how to love, how to be crazy, how to be human." - Ursula K. Le Guin, author of Lavinia and Annals of the Western Shore

Crazy Love by Leslie Morgan Steiner takes us into a disturbing, but all too common world of verbal and physical domestic violence through her personal story of being in an abusive marriage. Her experience tells us that everyone is vulnerable to domestic violence. Her story illustrates why women stay as long as they do in an abusive relationship and shows the lack of understanding and support many have while trying to navigate through their situation.

I came across this book randomly while pulling other books, and when the cover proclaimed Leslie What as a Nebula winner, I was surprised I hadn't ever heard of her. This volume of stories includes the 1999 Nebula-winning "The Cost of Doing Business," which centers around the concept of a society that allows surrogate victims. In general I found the stories to revolve around babies, relationships, pregnancies, parents, and love that transcends death and transformation.

No matter how brief or long, no matter how bizarre, each tale in this collection grabs readers and demands they rethink how they see all the myriad forms of love.

200 pages : 22 cm. "These 17 stories progress from grim to laugh-out-loud ludicrous without ever derogating their common subject, love, though they do depict it as fairly insane.

Love it. Enjoy watching Congressman Schiff maintain calm and respond to histrionic displays with wisdom, truth, and humor. I'm glad it's a Schiff Show and not some tired gop rerun.

ie what a great big scary comic talent. Love it.

This is a wonderful book. Here's what Booklist said in a starred review.

An ace at the new weirdness defined by the anthology Feeling Very Strange (2006), What uses it to be creepy, polemical, and funny, all at once or in various blendings. These 17 stories progress from grim to laugh-out-loud ludicrous without ever derogating their common subject, love, though they do depict it as fairly insane. The opening stories, "Finger Talk" and "Babies," feature women in abusive relationships they don't want to change; that one is trapped in a gorilla suit and the other is, unbeknownst to hubby, carrying sextuplets leavens their dire circumstances some, but enough? "The Cost of Doing Business" is about a professional victim, whose clients must be able to afford her subsequent hospitalizations and quite adequate comfort between jobs. Things lighten up through the predicaments of a man who masturbated for science when 18 and at 49 discovers he has thousands of offspring, a man who realizes that work doesn't proliferate during vacation without cause, a nauseating senior who expects familial love although he intends to live forever, and others, until at last there is the hermit researcher's tale, from which we learn, through a vale of our own tears of laughter, why there are always hermits. Love is why, of course. Crazy!

A "slim volume," Kate Wilhelm calls this in the introduction, but you could have fooled me. Its 195 pages are packed with stories that range from touching to unsettling, haunting to quirky; seventeen stories that keep you not only entertained, but thinking. What's narratives drive ahead, make you continue to read and guess. They are disturbing, funny, and very very brave.
