Reviews

"It is no exaggeration to say that these stories will be read beside her poems, as Keat's letters are beside his . . . 'The Sea & Its Shore' and 'In Prison' [are] worthy of Kafka or Poe." --David Kalstone, " The New York Times Book Review"
"A stunning collection. . . . These are the kind of stories you should linger over, savor, and rediscover again and again." --Elin Schoen, "Mademoiselle"
"A record of merciless observation, full of surprises both tragic and comic . . . Again and again, in these pages, it is the precision that astonishes . . . So often what Bishop gives us are these small, exact glimpses of the mundane, shorn of all rhetorical indulgence. But when looking is thus transformed, will any word but 'vision' do?" --April Bernard, "Newsday"
