Its readers say: "These stories won me over at once, heart and mind together." Alice Munro "That terrific and rare writer who can pair side-splitting humor with heartbreaking truth. She never ceases to make me laugh. She never ceases to make me cry." Sy Safransky, Sun Magazine "I loved these stories. Profoundly serious, absorbing, deft, and rare." Edith Pearlman "Like Raymond Carver, these linked stories attend unerringly to ordinary moments in ordinary lives. A life revealed in episodes, with breathless flights of imagination.....quiet, insistent, closely focused fiction." Brad Davis
