    Topato Wants You to Save Money

    Jackie has a map of the city on the wall of her bedroom, with a green pin for each of her trees. She has a first-kiss tree and a broken-arm tree. She has a car-accident tree. There is a tree at the hospital where Jackieís mother passed away into the long good night. When one of them gets cut down, Jackie doesnít know what to do but she doesnít let that stop her. She picks up the biggest rock she can carry and puts it through the window of a car. Smash. She intends to leave before the police arrive, but theyíre early.

    Ann is Jackieís best friend, but sheís got problems of her own. Her mother is chained up in the basement. How do you bring that up in casual conversation? ďOh, sorry Iíve been so distant, Jackie. My mother has more teeth than sheís supposed to, and she wonít eat anything thatís already dead.Ē Ann and her sister Margaret donít have much of a choice here. Their mother needs to be fed. It isnít easy but this is family. Itís not supposed to be easy. Itíll be okay as long as Margaret and Ann still have each other.

    Add in a cantankerous old man, his powerfully stupid dog, a headless ghost, a lesbian crush and a few unsettling visits from Jackieís own dead mother, and youíll find that One Bloody Thing After Another is a different sort of horror novel from the ones youíre used to. Itís as sad and funny as it is frightening, and it is as much about the way families rely on each other as it is about blood being drooled on the carpet. Though, to be honest, there is a lot of blood being drooled on the carpet.

    5.25 x 8.25 in, 160pp, paperback.
