    “At its essence, this enjoyable collection explores how nothing is ever exactly as it seems.”—Booklist

    "Readers who enjoy the darkly absurd fiction of George Saunders or the bizarre set-ups of Aimee Bender should find a lot to appreciate in The Age of Discovery, a collection that, in its strangeness—or maybe because of its strangeness—allows us to discover a little bit more about ourselves." -- Southern Review of Books

    "Hagenston . . .  has masterfully created a work that is captivating and poignant and will leave readers thinking about the characters and their experiences long after the last page is turned"-- Clarion Ledger
