Today’s Gusher Award for Literary Hype Goes to …

The Los Angeles Times wins this week’s Gusher Award for Achievement in Literary Hype for these lines from a review of Karen Russell’s St. Lucy’s Home for Girls Raised by Wolves:

“Uh-oh. Run for your life. This girl is on fire.”

Get a fire extinguisher and put out the flames of hyperbole in this one.
