Praise for Gary Amdahl

"Amdahl is one whose gifts are staggering and hard-won. The stories relate, by the way of guts through grace, the wholeness of a novel too good for mere philosophy. Gary Amdahl knows sports, men, women, and dogs, thank God, so thoroughly as to make them myth. Camus comes to mind: thought with extreme muscle." --Barry Hannah

Praise for Visigoth

"Although rich in anger and brutality, the stories collected in Visigoth are told with charm and a ranging, passionate intelligence." -- Ken Kalfus

"Gary Amdahl's vivid stories are at once lyrical and unexpectedly in your face. . . A book we'll remember." -- Thomas McGuane

"The men. . . . range from lotharios. . . to hockey jocks. . . But in Amdahl's highly literary, tragicomic vision, they melt our doubting hearts." -- Elle Magazine

"These are smart, fully realized stories - sensitive, layered and deliberate ... there's something freeing, refreshing, about Amdahl's voracious, inappropriate Visigoths." -- The Los Angeles Times
