Reviews

"If good writing is like a good suit--durable, seamless, and decidedly non-flashy--then Michael Knight [is a] master tailor."
"A young writer of first rank ... [Knight is] an old-fashioned yarn spinner who writes gently and with great gobs of empathy."
"Ten stories cut like gems from American family life....[They] have a gracious patina and a drawl of violence: [Knight's] stories emphasize the pivotal moment, the decisive moment."
"Wonderfully humane ... What's impressive about these stories is that they gather their considerable power not from stylistic flash or conceptual cleverness but from the fact that they tell us only what we need to know."
"Like Raymond Carver, Knight has the knack of portraying ordinary people coping the best they can with extraordinary circumstances. But Knight's voice--inflected with wry humor, lingering regrets, and the occasional flash of unfounded optimism--is distinctly his own."
