    1. Envision the largest stained glass scene from the church of your choosing, shattered into pieces no larger than a Kennedy half dollar and given to you on soiled butcher paper with the instructions to recreate the image with a Slipknot album cover as a guide That is the equivalent of this masterful, mindfuck of a novel.This book isn t for everyone, and I won t argue with the community that pitched it after fifty pages I experienced long sections of 20 30 pages that I had to reread to keep up with [...]


    2. Once upon a time in the Pacific Northwest a slightly fucked up girl escaped her unsatisfying life by starting to run with some vampires By paring down some of The Orange Eats Creeps backstory you could almost make the sort of basic premise of this novel sound like a delinquent version of Twilight The vampires if they really are vampires and not just a teenage affectation, or the construction of the narrators very disturbed mind aren t beautiful, nor cultured They most likely smell really bad, li [...]


    3. This book was all voice and far too little of plot, coherent incident or arrangement, narrative development, character, or even imaginative backdrop Reading it felt like taking a cross country drive with a junkie who talks the whole way in desperate monotone, never hushing, commenting on each thing his eye lights on, and as it s a cross country drive, endless things pop up in no apparent succession, with little connection, and no ultimate design.I have quite a high tolerance for style over plot, [...]


    4. I almost saw G G Allin perform Running late for his gig, I was rolling up to the entrance of Stache s, the small indie rock punk club on High Street in Columbus, when a burst of people stumbled out the door What s going on I asked someone who was running by me G.G is naked on stage with the mic cord wrapped around his dick, and he s throwing bottles and shit at the audience I m pretty sure he meant actual shit.O kay Maybe not so much.G G makes a brief cameo in The Orange Eats Creeps, which is fi [...]


    5. here s a book you have to adjust your brain for here s a book you have to say yes to and then follow through with that yes.i understand why it s so hotly contested here based on all the reviews here, it s clear you either go along with krilanovich or you don t i did but it still took time i kept having to come up for air from this book it was harrowing and jangling, like music with a very erratic rhythm but once my ears and eyes got used to it, it got into my heart nothing is easy here the plot, [...]


    6. Apparently I m going to need to add a shelf to my list books I couldn t finish I guess I m not cool enough punk enough young enough to get this novel, but it didn t pass my 50 page rule After some friends and reviews spoke highly of The Orange Eats Creep, I thought it would be something I could enjoy It isn t I m all for non linear and achronological novels, even angry, wild, fragmentary, or hallucinatory novels, but big but, here there has to be some clarity of purpose or sense of motion at lea [...]


    7. Scrappy and wild, but with an overriding post postmodern intelligence You could almost jump in and out of this book at any point and have a similar experience of reading scenes and people move but the iconography and sensation of the work remain deeply, monolithically unchanged The deep obsidian core of the novel resists any ordinary approach or attempt to penetrate Despite this, it s easy to get caught up in the exhilaration of the incidental narrative moments, and nothing ever feels unnecessar [...]


    8. The Orange eats Creeps is pretty impressive debut A dream vision of 90 s Pacific Northwest filled with wild, possibly vampiric, teen delinquents, strange and visionary homeless and runaways, serial killers, and stranger figures that echoes with the fervent music of basement hardcore, stoner metal and riot girl Despite its declaration of itself as novel this is of a prose poem, though I guess you can t market those any This is too bad since along with the novella it is one of my favorite forms, [...]


    9. I give up.I understand that Krilanovich is challenging what literature means, what I think of a book I can only say that a book and a story are not the same thing TOEC is a book Honestly, if this work were a short story, I would have positive things to say and I would have finished it , and Kirlanovich would have accomplished the same goals, I believe Instead, by going for 208 pages, she throws challenges at the readers that most of us are not willing to accept without reward I was reading on a [...]


    10. UhhI apparently did not get the memo on this book First noticing it appear on NPR s Best Books of 2010 and then seeing rave reviews pop up on and elsewhere made me super excited to read this novel Plus, it was billed as being about hobo junkie vampires running around and causing havoc could it not be good, right So disappointing Yes, the writing was interesting, descriptive and oddly beautiful, but there was NO STORY At least none that I could find in the weird ramblings Had I not read the book [...]


    11. Could have been three or four pages long a stark and hallucinatory piece, a kick to the head As it was though the scene of homeless teens drinking cough syrup and either going to rock shows or trashing convenience stores at night was deftly written I became numb and lost interest The same scene repeated over and over Forty years ago, this strategy might have been considered groundbreaking today, not so much Nonetheless, I plowed ahead, hoping to see why the book ended up on many 2010 best of lis [...]


    12. Easily one of the worst books I ve ever read The author seems to think that by repeating various iterations of Hobo Vampire Junkie Sluts that the words will somehow gain meaning There is no plot, the characters are given names and repeatedly called hobo vampire junkie sluts, but they are all entirely interchangeable A complete and thorough waste of my time.


    13. review copy from publisherIt s a christmas miracle For a moment there, I thought for sure that I would never finish this novel December has been an awful month for me when it comes to reading I barely had any time to sit down and just get lost in a novel, and when I did find time, this one wasn t really sucking me in I wasn t feeling it , and found myself rereading paragraph after paragraph trying to make sense of it all.Grace Krilanovich is a first time novelist who creates her own form of stor [...]


    14. The plot, such that there is, follows a small gang of young men and the narrator, our fucked up heroine, as they wander about aimlessly and purposelessly The heroine wants to find her sister Kim They were in a foster home together and Kim took off and joined her own gang of vampires The search for her takes place mainly in the heroine s mind, but Kim occupies a lot of her thoughts There is a passage in the book that can lead the reader to believe that there is no Kim, or that the narrator is Kim [...]


    15. Oh man, I think I was supposed to love this one Steve Erickson who intros it in typically hyperbolic style is probably my favorite living American novelist, and it got hyped on various litblogs that I also enjoy Plus I like a hallucinatory style in general, and am intrigued by the kind of European novel that one of the blurbs compares this too But the whole teenage vampire slut thing the vampire metaphor was a little too forcedly metaphorical they re really just runaway teens , and the sex stuff [...]


    16. four unbelievably grotesque stars for the writing alone unsure exactly what transpired in this phantasmagoria of sensory overload vampires um, in a way leeches would be apt, or remoras symbiotic drawing off of other beings for sustenance and survival this was a heady read, full of gore and semen and blood and flesh and dirt and rotting matter and junk food and mysterious animals plenty of questionable behavior rampant sex of any and sundry types , rape, beatings, murder, feasting, drug use, the [...]


    17. Sometimes you read a book and you want to approach the author and, inconspicuously, draw them off to the side You ll look them earnestly in the eye and, maybe look around to make sure you re not drawing undue attention, and say to them Dude Are you okay


    18. I picked up this book truly hoping that someone, particularly a woman, had cracked open what has become the often vapid vampire novel market with an experimental, high art take It wasn t until after I began reading it and was looking for perhaps some missed insight that I read the reviews Lots of comparisons are bandied about between Krilanovich and the experimentalists Burroughs, Acker, etc Perhaps that s appropriate, as it takes a certain kind of reader to appreciate those kinds of writers Wha [...]


    19. Dear lord, I finally made it through this book First moral of this story is don t believe the hype I think I picked up on this book through a couple of short articles on it saying how it was a new take on the vampire genre and comparing it W.S Burroughs But having waded my way through this garbage, I feel like the book should have been titled The author throws up words on a page , and also any reviewer that compares with Burroughs is either doing Burroughs a huge disservice or has really never r [...]


    20. Grace Krilanovich pens her junkie vampire tale with an emphasis on Dadaist literature and psychopomp pacing Initially setting the stage as a search for a missing foster sibling, Krilanovich s teenaged vampire protagonist explains her affectations for railways, meth, and attention The addition of a subplot involving a serial killer and an unresolved quest blend into a stream of consciousness so verbose that the author and protagonist lose sight of their intentions While a verbal tour de force tha [...]



    21. A really extraordinary and captivating novel The richness of the language alone would have been enough to satisfy me, but there was also a profound emotional resonance that made it powerful and genuinely moving For a book as experimental in nature and as devoid of traditional plot as this to also be so touching and emotionally engaged is truly a triumph It reminded me of David Lynch s movie Inland Empire similar in that a swirl of images and experiences surround the very personal journey of one [...]


    22. Wow Did you know that Kathy Acker and William Burroughs had a love child Her name is Grace Krilanovich and this is her debut The Orange Eats Creeps reads like an extended tone poem written by someone on an LSD trip who has just woken up from a fever dream It shares quite a bit of DNA with Acker s surreal Don Quixote weirdly disjointed, albeit evocative, prose written from constantly shifting perspectives and describing the palpable horrors of a vagabond, junkie teenaged girl roaming the streets [...]


    23. I wanted to like this book I really, really did But I couldn t even finish it, even though I picked it up and put it down several times hoping I could acclimate to the unusual rhythm and approach Because I can appreciate experimental fiction And I found a lot of dark, fucked up beauty in the language of this book But ultimately, there was nothing to keep me turning the pages I couldn t find even the thinnest thread of a plot I kept getting confused about details And I couldn t manage to care abo [...]


    24. One of the weirdest books I ve read It was all tone, mood Get ready for things not to make a lot of sense Felt like a long poem than a novel It s 172 pages, but should have been about half that long the 1st half was stronger, in part because the whole thing was so repetitive She likes the word fissure I d probably like to flip through this again Made me think of Kathy Acker.My favorite passage The night is brown browntime, the day is orange orangetime, then pink pinktime Traveling on hijacked r [...]


    25. This is a stunning book, loaned to me The story is grotesque, gorgeous, disturbing, and unsettling in a way that made me doubt myself as a reader I felt unnerved and unsure at every turn, never fully confident in what I understood or felt I spent forever months slowly reading this book, took it everywhere, and still often felt like it was leaving me out, that I was left behind from some dark institutional secrets of it of the genre of everyone else who loved it whatever.The prose is powerful Gro [...]


    26. I hate for my first review on this site to be negative, and I would hate to give the impression that i hate this book The sad fact is that hate is a word that connotes strong feelings, and there wasn t enough going on here to stir anything as profound as hate up It s one long tone poem, which sounds great, but the themes are so bluntly hammered again and again that the sometimes beautiful sentences get lost in the, I dunno, just obviousness what a gross word of the work I couldn t finish it, so [...]


    27. I gave up on this audiobook only a few chapters from the end I felt not so much that I surrendered as that I had filled up on prose to the point where it threatened to spill over Also, by that point I was rolling my eyes so much they threatened to pop out of my skull.Krilanovich captures the essence of an angry, outsider teenager so well that I actually had to look her up on Writing something like this in the late 20 s is either a sign of impressive empathy or a severe arrested development There [...]


    28. Grace Krilanovich will be an author to watch, but her debut doesn t quite deliver on its promise Discarding ordinary structure and character, this book is primarily first person chiaroscuro, all impressionistic scenes and description of surreal surroundings and vague events Blurbs making comparisons to Burroughs and Charles Burns have a point, but what s lacking is real drive and movement the book is pretty much the same from beginning to end It s a series of scenes and observations which, while [...]


    29. It was weird reading this book, I finished it pretty quick and plan to reread it Some of the locales she wrote about I once lived by I lived in Eugene back in 1999 2001 during the Seattle WTO riots Our apartment was in the Whiteaker neighborhood at the end of Route 105 Meth heads were common on my street, heroin was cheaper than pot Junkies hung out under the underpass by my aptartment There was a riot down the block I walked to and watched burn outs scream at cops in riot gear Seven of us lived [...]
