Reviews

"Beattie captures the milieu perfectly... An in-depth study of a subculture and a staggering almanac of emotions."--Entertainment Weekly
"The collection is not so much a museum of past work as a dynamic, entertaining, 32-year exploration of the form-a reminder that, in the hands of a career virtuoso, the short story is very much alive."--Nathan Heller, Slate
