Reviews

" Robet McBrearty s stories occupy a fascinating world where the daft becomes heartfelt, the dangerous becomes ordinary, and the ordinary becomes downright odd. A world, in other words, seen through a pane of absurdist old glass. David Wroblewski, author, "The Story of Edgar Sawtelle"
" McBrearty has a flair for the comic. "Chicago Tribune"
""McBrearty's writing is simultaneously poignant and hilarious. Themes of belonging, nostalgia, and the nature of home intertwine in this deep short novella." "Foreword Reviews"
" "The Western Lonesome Society" is a thing of beauty, a house with many rooms, all built of humor and pathos. I don t know what to call it, comic novel or surreal novella, or a genre all its own, a literary tall tale. Barry Kitterman, author, "The Baker s Boy"
