Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"There’s a sly, tart intelligence at work in many of these stories. . . . The writing is taut, sharp-edged, and very funny." —Globe and Mail

"These stories clearly display King’s trademark wit and intelligence, his facility with characterization, and his mastery of narrative art." —The Ottawa Citizen
