Valery the Great book


Anvil Press


Carl Wiens created a wonderful illustration that captures the essence of this collection of black-humoured, eccentric stories by Elaine McCluskey. By turns comic, pathetic, and tenderly tragic.

“Her voice is scathing, very funny, her stories twisting at the end to leave me a bit stunned. … I loved this book, a short story collections whose curation had as much thought put into it as the stories themselves, a fantastic package with a gorgeous design. In addition to considerable talent, there is furious energy at work here, McCluskey giving it her all, and as a result, reading was a pleasure.” — Pickle Me This
