Reviews

"Wry and rueful.... Quirky and languorous, [Greer's] style beautifully captures his characters' wistful self-consciousness.... His stories are humane and hopeful in ways that are too rare." --John Perry, The San Francisco Chronicle Book Review

"Refreshing and provocative...Greer's stories are self-contained and well crafted.... Subtle and poetic." --Chris Berdik, The Boston Book Review

"[An] impressive debut...There are very few flubbed lines in Greer's stark, delicate opererttas, which are as clever as they are gravely real." --Mark Rozzo, Los Angeles Times

"Crystal-like clarity...outstanding...nuanced language...Greer is a writer worth watching." --Martin Wilson, Austin Chronicle

"Impressive...Greer's descriptive talents are immense.... While these stories are thick with melancholy, their frankness is refressing." --The New York Times Book Review
