Jason Ockert?s debut collection of demented Southern short stories is titled, Rabbit Punches. George Saunders has said, “Rabbit Punches marks the debut of an exciting new American talent.?; and Padgett Powell has said, “The writing is hip but not terminally hip, fun, at times very fun, and contains signs that the author is disturbed enough to be worth watching. He may tell us some new things.”
