Welcome back to the wildly-imaginative worlds of Christopher Boucher, where hearts take vacations and language is kept in zoos. With Big Giant Floating Head, Boucher brings us more of the 'strange brilliance' - in the words of Emily St. John Mandel - that drew readers to his novels How to Keep Your Volkswagen Alive and Golden Delicious. Here, you'll root for the misfits known as the Unloveables, and marvel at the couple that sells all of their experiences with their house ('For Sale By Owner'). With equal parts humour and heartbreak, these interweaving narratives solidify Boucher's place among ground-breaking surrealists like Donald Barthelme, Karen Russell and George Saunders. In each section, Boucher carries and his readers into uncharted and moving new territory.
