For fans of Chuck Palahniuk, Joyce Carol Oates, and Karen Russell, the stories in Francine Cunningham's debut collection God Isn't Here Today ricochet between form and genre, taking readers on a dark, irreverent, yet poignant journey led by a unique and powerful new voice.

Driven by desperation into moments of transformation, Cunningham's characters are presented with moments of choice--some for the better and some for the worse. A young man goes to God's office downtown for advice; a woman discovers she is the last human on Earth; an ice cream vendor is driven insane by his truck's song; an ageing stripper uses undergarments to enact her escape plan; an incubus tires of his professional grind; and a young woman inherits a power that has survived genocide, but comes with a burden of its own.

Even as they flirt with the fantastic, Cunningham's stories unfold with the innate elegance of a spring fern, reminding us of the inherent dualities in human nature--and that redemption can arise where we least expect it.
