“Rife with deadpan humor and memorable characters”
Rachel Cantor’s new novel, A Highly Unlikely Scenario, has been published by Melville House.
From the New York Times: “By layering the ridiculous inventions of her mind with the ridiculous facts of the world, Cantor creates a novel about being incredulous and certain at the same time, about listening without judgment, about acting on faith . . . A dystopian satire; a story about storytelling, believing and listening—A Highly Unlikely Scenario is ultimately a history of our own strange world.”
From Publisher’s Weekly: “Rife with deadpan humor and memorable characters mixed with time travel and supernatural powers, Cantor suspends disbelief and creates a loony world entirely of her own, which is terrifically funny and effortlessly enjoyable.”
Rachel Cantor’s stories have appeared in Paris Review, Kenyon Review, Fence, and other publications. Her fiction has been featured in several issues of NER (20.4, 23.3, 24.4, and 29.4).
A Highly Unlikely Scenario is available from Melville House and other independent booksellers.
