Praise for Root and Shoot

"If real life is stranger than fiction, Nathan Leslie's new collection Root and Shoot is the splendid exception. Vivid, bizarre, and hilarious, each individual piece of short fiction forms a mosaic of the everyday and the extraordinary. From a man adrift after a recent divorce and hired to commit arson, to a woman who gives birth to a spoon, each of these stories contains characters that you couldn't forget if you tried."
                                            —Amelia Fisher, The Literary Review

"I'd have said these characters would 'feel at home' in a Ray Carver story, but these are characters that precisely do not feel 'at home.' Ever. These same kinds of characters appear vividly throughout the fifty-two stories in Root and Shoot, only now they seem even to take on a Dostoyevskian tinge. Think Notes from Underground."
                                             —Charles Rammelkamp, The Potomac

"Nathan Leslie, in his new collection Root and Shoot, quietly propels the reader through short after short, making a case for himself as a flash writer worth paying attention to."
