Inhaltsangabe:

Easy Hardwick has it made. At just about thirty, she's got a tumbledown cottage in small-town Oregon and an uncomplicated acting gig as the space-babe eye candy on a sci-fi parody show. She spends her downtime online, bickering with fans and fellow culture vultures about film trivia and relishing her minor-but-satisfying celebrity.

Enter Harrison. What begins as a jocular online flirtation spills into a messy IRL affair, and Easy finds herself pregnant with twins and sharing her home with the love of her life...plus the teenage daughter, baby son, and slightly unhinged, soon-to-be-ex wife she kind of didn't totally know he had.

Easy may play a space ditz in hot-pants on TV, but her voice is restlessly intelligent, negotiating the absurdities of a world lived onscreen and online and striving to make sense of heady problems: love affairs, ex-wives, teen girls, eating disorders, and whether cannibalistic flies count as zombies. Like the captive great white shark that sets Easy's story in motion, Nadine Darling's writing has got teeth. Her pointed, precise dialogue, empathetic insights, and live-wire observations elevate this novel from zany domestic drama to outlandish comic masterpiece. She Came From Beyond! is an audacious, fresh debut from a writer to watch.

Recognized as one of "35 Debut Authors Over 35"

Rezension: While the circumstances around Easy spin wildly out of control, it's her grounded-yet-comical narration that makes the book stand out. Her snarky asides and darkly funny quips will make readers laugh out loud, even in the face of death, divorce, mental illness, and heartbreak. Darling crafts a debut novel that's truly like nothing else. Unexpected comedy and an unusual plot make this a weirdly delightful read.

Darling entertains with a dry, witty humor that results in an amusing and zany romp.

Wild romp of a novel...I can t tell you how much I m enjoying this novel so far and Nadine Darling s style is something fresh, original, and so much fun."

Nadine Darling has written something so original the words picaresque, macabre, quirky, farcical and wacky come to mind that she can be said to have invented a genre that we should call Comic Confessional as Alternative to Suicide. Five stars. (I never say that.)--Joe Bob Briggs"

So original the words picaresque, macabre, quirky, farcical and wacky come to mind that [Nadine Darling] can be said to have invented a genre that we should call Comic Confessional as Alternative to Suicide. She Came From Beyond! is extremely depressing comedy of the best sort. Ms. Darling s voice, peppered with hilarious pop-culture references, is so right that each sentence is a perfect little confection of wry wordcraft emanating from a wise and deeply disturbed place that combines the spirit of the Chuckles the Clown episode of The Mary Tyler Moore Show with the moment in Schindler s List when Liam Neeson realizes that he could have saved more Jews. I loved it so much that I had to lobotomize myself before I read it a second time to make sure I wouldn t know what would happen next.--John Bloom, author of Eccentric Orbits: The Iridium Story"

Hugely funny, dark, biting, with prose that soars . . . If Lorrie Moore were a huge goddamn nerd, she'd write a book like this.--Glen Weldon, NPR panelist and author of Superman: The Unauthorized Biography

[A] wild romp of a novel . . . I can t tell you how much I m enjoying this novel so far and Nadine Darling s style is something fresh, original, and so much fun."
