Patricia Hampl"Richard Katrovas has become an indispensible masculine voice, by turns brash and strikingly tender. These short stories form a strong, singular narrative, but they are also individual pieces of beauty and insight. Maybe only a poet can write memoir with this kind of torque."
A memoir by poet Richard Katrovas.
What People are saying about this
Tracy Kidder"The Years of Smashing Bricks is pleasantly unpredictable, departing from the formula of the standard memoir. It is strange and haunting, and often very funny. I found its grittiness exhilarating."
