Jascha HoffmanThe source of both tragedy and humor here is the wide gap between the dreams that draw these men onward and the trail of disaster they leave behind…The portraits that emerge are exhaustive and often severe, but there is something delicate in Samuels's method. In his stories the random flow of events takes on real meaning, allowing us to see what's hidden in plain view and to hear what isn't being said. He has some of Joan Didion's gift for stripping the layers away until a fraud is exposed.
