Editorial Reviews

Alex Stein
Perfect little stories.
James Geary
Steven Carter has acquitted himself well.
Amelia de Moura Tavares
Steven Carter's triumph is to have established a sort of universal ethic of 'how to be,' while promoting at the same time a holistic view of human beings in individual social, cultural, and psychological contexts.
Glenn Lucke
Exquisite.
Edwin J. Barton
To their credit, Steven Carter's books make honorable attempts to shore against our ruins a devotion to the powers of erudition, critical analysis, and judgment. In the words of Ezra Pound in Canto LXXXI, 'Here error is all in the not done, all in the diffidence that faltered. . .' For Steven Carter, these are words to live by.
Thomas Cobb
Praise for Steven Carter's previous book, Judgment of the Crows:
I have Judgment of the Crows on my night table and read twenty or so pages a night. . . . The work is smooth and wonderfully convoluted . . . mysteriously complex and completely delightful.
