Having read many of Ford's books, including The Sportswriter & Independence Day, I was certain these short stories would be stand-outs. And indeed they are, small slices of life that are as unsettling as they are expertly written.

Richard Ford is definitely one of the top literary novelists writing today, if only for his catalog and not necessarily his most recent effort. You will be stunned, startled and satisfied with these short gems.

'A remarkable collection...The style is so plainspoken that the characters emotions seem like ghosts lurking in the backgrounNd. The result is a thrilling narrative power...These are disquieting, fearless, heart-stopping stories.' (Newsday)
