Reviews

Starred review. Barrett's consummate historical stories of family, ambition, science, and war are intellectually stimulating, lushly emotional, and altogether pleasurable.
Stories that shiver with an awe . . . realizations occur that can only be called sublime, everything preceding them consisting of the mundane stuff of the world transformed by the alchemy of story.
An elegant new story collection... Barrett frequently telescopes out of human frailty to an almost cosmic realm.--John Freeman
