Winner of the 1990 Drue Heinz Literature Prize A wonderful book . . . in the rarified company of the best of Raymond Carver, Richard Ford, and Tobias Wolff, without imitating any one of them."--Russell Banks

This is a fine collection of short stories. Hillis captures life vividly while placing the humorous and tragic in close proximity. Hillis seems to be at his best capturing the world of a rural childhood. He also excels in depicting the exhileration of dreams that come up against some tough luck. For those who enjoy the best of Raymond Carver and Tobias Wolff Hillis is a worthy companion. - Daniel Picker
