Editorial Reviews

Bostonia
"[I]n settings from Texas to Chicago, from L.A. to an Irish bar in South Boston, individuals separated from the mainstream by race, poverty, or youth seek their way into it, revenge on it, or both. Most of the stories end with the same optimism-the best way to deal with a dismal present.—
Michael Salkind
Greer demonstrates a keen ear for the way people talk, and a gift for capturing slices of indigenous life in small-town America...[H]e succeeds in making us forget we're reading a book...[T]he stories in this book achieve the goal of taking us into their times and places.—The Colorado Springs Independent
Sybil Downing
A short story has been compared with a flare in the sky that for a brief moment lights up one portion of the world and the lives of a few people caught in its glare. The stories in Robert Greer’s Isolation and Other Stories [do] just that. Twelve stories in all, they are set in big cities, little towns, an isolated ranch. The characters are sometimes white, sometimes black. With only one exception, the recurring theme is the power of friendship, love, forgiveness and humor.
