A National Indie Bestseller

"Dazzling . . . Ling Ma writes with such authority that we readers are simply swept along . . . If sometimes we wonder where we've ended up, maybe that sense of dislocation is the desired final effect." --Maureen Corrigan, NPR's Fresh Air

"Uncanny and haunting . . . The genius of [Bliss Montage] is unearthed in how [Ma] stretches the boundaries of the world while zooming in on the details that matter most . . . A powerful reminder that there is more than one way to see -- and really know -- a person." --Michele Filgate, The Washington Post

What happens when fantasy tears the screen of the everyday to wake us up? Could that waking be our end?

In Bliss Montage, Ling Ma brings us eight wildly different tales of people making their way through the madness and reality of our collective delusions: love and loneliness, connection and possession, friendship, motherhood, the idea of home. A woman lives in a house with all her ex-boyfriends. A toxic friendship grows up around a drug that makes you invisible. An ancient ritual might heal you of anything--if you bury yourself alive.

These and other scenarios investigate the ways that the outlandish and the ordinary are shockingly, deceptively, heartbreakingly alike.
