"So many first books are preambles to great things to come. Not so with Donn Irving's Escape into the Sea. This is no apprentice work. With the subtlety of Sherwood Anderson, the poise and grace of Marilynne Robinson, the slow-burn resonating power of Peter Taylor, and the calm beauty of poets like James Wright and Robert Penn Warren, Donn Irving emerges on the American literary scene fully realized. Irving breathes new life into the American short story."
