What Miranda July Said About My Book
"Not merely lyrical and strange, but also deadpan funny. I can't shake the feeling that I know this woman, personally—like we hung out at a party or something. But I don't, and we didn't. She's just that good."
What Damien Walter (The Guardian) Said About My Book
Insects Are Just Like You and Me Except Some of Them Have Wings by Kuzhali Manickavel is just very, very beautiful. The stories it collects are by turns weird, whimsical, surreal, visceral, haunting, quirky and fantastic. Manickavel's writing is poetic, her stories often little more than captured moments that hint at larger happenings beyond their borders, vignettes rich in the details of character and emotion. In short, the kind of thing you will either love very much or find deeply frustrating.

What Anna Tambour Said About My Book
"Insects Are Just Like You And Me Except Some of Them Have Wings is a find, a flawed gem (and collector's item to be) by an author who has immense potential as a satirist of cutting compassion and wit."
What Lisa Gatlin (Arizona Daily Wildcat) Said About My Book
"Book you've never heard of that was brilliant - "Insects Are Just Like You and Me Except Some of Them Have Wings" by Kuzhali Manickavel is a fantastic collection of (very) short stories unlike any other. It plays with words and reality in ways that make you crazy and impressed, plus it's funny and, seriously, just that good."
What Geeta Doctor (India Today) Said About My Book
"Har! Har! Har!"
