What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Rich. . . . Ardizzone mines fresh fictional veins and displays a stunning stylistic range.”—Washington Times

“Ardizzone writes a strong, spare prose that quickly sketches characters and situations, yet his work is invested with a deep humanism that compels the reader to see his characters as people—people you care about.”—Seattle Times

“All the stories are intensely told and skillfully written. Ardizzone has a special capacity for appreciating the values of home and family, of ethnic pride and humor, and of street smarts.”—Chicago Magazine

"Tough, menacing stories in which fate and memory exercise their Hardylike sway, all narrated in a variety of inventive and accomplished voices."—Chicago Tribune
