What People Are Saying

Jay McInerney
"Charles D'Ambrosio brings large ambitions in a versitile character short-story form; whether there's a tightly focused, gem-like 'The Point' - one of the best stories I've read in years - or in the muscular long-distance narratives like 'Her Real Name' and 'Jacinta' he proves himself a significant new American voice."
Philip Roth
"'Point' is a strong first book. This mind here, terrific wit, and an almost offhand display of narrative cunning. A rich, flexible, expressive style is already stamped. 'D'Ambrosio!' in itself worth the price of admission. Start by reading together the fairy story 'American Bullfrog' and the sad story 'Jacinta' and you'll be startled how wide ranging D'Ambrosio's talent is."
Richard Stern
"Lyrical, comic, unsentimental, wise and clear-headed....D'Ambrosio is the bard of this unparadisal land of promise."

    Beautifully Immersing!

    I enjoyed reading this collection of short stories. Charles D'Ambrosio has a way of immersing the reader into his stories with the most evocative of narratives while using the most simplest of words. His stories are of a genre called "Slice of Life Realism." I can feel these stories and the characters within them and they stay with me. My favorites in this collection are "Her Real Name" and "Open House." If you are looking for a short story collection, I recommend you give this one a try.
