Reviews

Wendy Rawlings' Time for Bed is snappy, hilarious, bracing reading. She's a master storyteller who's thought long and hard about the possibilities of the form. This is a long-overdue collection from one of my favorite writers.--Jess Row
Time for Bed took me to places I was scared to go and made me glad to be there. Whether Rawlings's stories involve the everyday or the outlandish, they come alive through the magic of deep and urgent emotion: stakes. Women are front and center here: mothers with regrets, daughters with desires, loyal friends, sworn frenemies. Time for Bed's final story is one of the best about 9/11 I've read.--Pamela Erens, author of Eleven Hours
