At large, the heroes and heroines of Agata Tomažič’s stories appear to be entirely unremarkable people, leading perfectly ordinary lives until … something absurd happens —like the pompous yuppie who starts morphing into a frog — or something ordinary, but out of order. “Those Ripping Out Japanese Knotweed Can’t Be All Bad” is the first-person account of a woman who meets her future partner at a knotweed extermination project and whose tale, comical at times, addresses the sombre subject of domestic violence. All her stories wow the reader with peculiar language, dark humour, and surprising turns.
