What People are Saying About This

Kevin Moffett

The stories in Shane Hinton's Pinkies wriggle with volatility. Bracingly unpredictable, they'll slip out of your hands if you're not careful. Here is all the absurdity and latent dread of life, but funnier, stranger, more potent. —Kevin Moffett, author of The Silent History

Mikhail Iossel

Shane Hinton's writing is terrifically smart and coolly cerebral, and full of quietly reserved, understated power. He treats the despair of the essential human condition with strength and dignity. A remarkable new young American writer, whose talent is likely to become progressively more vital and profound in the years to come. —Mikhail Iossel, author of Every Hunter Wants to Know

Brock Clarke

Shane Hinton's Pinkies is weird, and it is wonderful. This debut collection—in which the everyday is always extraordinary—reminds me of fiction by Joy Williams and Mary Robison, and also of movies by Charlie Kaufman. If that sounds like ridiculously high praise, then good: Pinkies deserves it. —Brock Clarke, author of The Happiest People in the World

Jeff Parker

Shane Hinton's fiction is the visceral kind that you feel with your whole body, and it makes me want to cry through my laughing and cringing. I don't know a better compliment to give a writer. —Jeff Parker, author of Where Bears Roam The Streets

Lidia Yuknavitch

If Kafka got it on with Flannery O'Connor, Pinkies would be their love child. —Lidia Yuknavitch, author of The Small Backs of Children
