One of my all-time favorite short story writers, the Pushcart Prize-winning Stacey Richter, author of the hilarious and moving collections My Date With Satan and Twin Study, has endorsed Leaving Mundania. She writes:
Rarely does a book so deftly crack open the everyday world to reveal the riot of imagination within. With humor, intelligence, and more than a little bravery, Lizzie Stark guides us into the vast subculture of larping, where lawyers become vampire hunters and systems analysts turn into knights. Hilarious, honest, and enlightening, Leaving Mundania reminds us how thin the boundaries are between the roles we play and the selves we believe ourselves to be.
