What's New On the Bookshelf?

I'm a fan of Karen Russell. Karen is only 29 and writes with such verve and freshness that it takes my breath away. Her first novel, called Swamplandia, is like nothing I have ever read before. No, honestly. The world she describes is so unique that I'm in awe whenever I get time to read a chapter before bed. Have any of you read her well-acclaimed short story collection, St.Lucy's Home for Girls Raised by Wolves?
