Reviews

[O the Clear Moment is] classic McClanahan: the tale of the perennial underdog who, despite all odds, redeems himself in the end, snatching a moment of dignity from the clutches of humiliation. --San Francisco Chronicle

O the Clear Moment is a vivid expression of this aesthetic, an 'implied autobiography' . . . a perfect encapsulation of what McClanahan's been up to all along. --Los Angeles Times

Playful, self-deprecating and wickedly sharp, McClanahan's nine autobiographical short stories delve into youthful shenanigans and poignant first love in the 1940s . . . McClanahan muses on the writing life and classic Americana with giddy nostalgia and gently barbed humor. --Publishers Weekly (starred)
