Reviews

"The stories in Last Call are about fractured families, lovers and losers (often one and the same), and coming of age the hard way. Cook writes with ease and naturalness and a wonderful, sorrowful knowledge of human foibles."--Jean Thompson, author of Who Do You Love and City Boy --Jean Thompson
"The stories in Last Call are so entertaining it seems almost unfair that they also resonate powerfully long after you've put down the book. K. L. Cook has whopping gifts, and this is a splendid book."--Robert Boswell, author of Century's Son --Robert Boswell
"K. L. Cook starts with the pungent inventory of country western songs but lights it all, even his honky-tonks, fried food, downed trees, sick dogs, and rain, with a new understanding of men and women. These are rich stories by an exciting new voice."--Ron Carlson, author of A Kind of Flying--Ron Carlson
