What People are saying about this

Olga Andreyev Carlisle
These moving tales speak about America today, about the nuclear family disintegrating in a country cored of its traditional values. Solitary people confront life's most exteme situations without the hope of conquering, and yet the author's concern for them has the ability to exhilerate the reader.
Larry Heinemann
There are nine stories, poignant and almost shy. Anne Calcagno has written not of the sexual politics of strife, but of the deeper understanding of life, complicated mismatches and inevitable miscalculations. Calcagno has the clean voice and sharp unblinking eye of the true storyteller.
Lynda Barry
Nine stories, each unforgettably clear, magnetic and alive. Language as nabbeningly fascinating as a fifty car locomotive, perfectly carved, from a single piece of wood.
