Flying Leap

Stories

Judy Budnitz

Picador

These shocking, brilliant, and ultimately beautiful stories chronicle the lives of ordinary people in extraordinary situations. Each tale is laced with enough wit, humor, and imagination to keep the reader constantly amazed. From the young son persuaded to donate his heart to his dying mother, to the girl who befriends a man in a dog suit in post-apocolyptic suburbia, to the man and woman conducting a love affair across a park bench, these characters delight and dazzle.

REVIEWS

Praise for Flying Leap

"Flying Leap is a tremendous debut--funny, dark, weird, adventurous, slanted, and enchanted."
--Newsweek

"Budnitz reveals a bionic ear for clever dialogue and a picturesque writing style with a fearless tone that rarely wavers, no matter how quirky the conceit." --The New York Times Book Review
