Description: Like her extraordinary novel, The Giant's House -- a finalist for the National Book Award in Fiction in 1996 -- Elizabeth McCracken's stories are a delightful blend of eccentricity and romanticism. Originally published in hardcover in 1993, "Here's Your Hat What's Your Hurry" is now available in paperback for the very first time.

In the title story, a young man and his wife are intrigued and amused when a peculiar unknown aunt announces a surprise visit -- only to find that she can't be traced on the family tree. In "What We Know About the Lost Aztec Children", the "normal" middle-class son of a former circus performer (the Armless Woman) must suddenly confront his mother's pain. In "It's Bad Luck to Die", a young woman discovers that her husband's loving creations -- he's a tattoo artist -- make her feel at home in her skin for the first time.

As Katherine Dunn, author of Geek Love, wrote in a glowing tribute to this book, "These stories are flat-out wonderful. For all their strangeness they are a powerful and optimistic affirmation of life". Named an AlA Notable Book of 1994, this collection of nine magical, quirky stories will steal your heart.
