A quote from a Kirkus review of Spider Love Song and Other Stories set against the collaged book cover. The review calls the book "an original and delightfully off-kilter debut collection about searching for a sense of belonging."

Excerpt from the starred Kirkus review

Congratulations to Nancy Au and her upcoming short story collection, Spider Love Song and Other Stories, for receiving a starred review from Kirkus Reviews. You can read the full review here and preorder the book on our website.

Spider Love Song and Other Stories treads the fault line that forms between lovers, family, friends, and culture, exposing injuries and vulnerabilities, but also the strength and courage necessary to recast resentment and anger into wonder and power. Au’s lyrical style, humor, and tender attraction to her characters’ fancies and failings make this powerful debut a delight to read.
