Reviews

"Impressive...What is lovely about these stories is that Watts can take a few words and paint a landscape that reveals so much richness about the people and culture."--Library Journal
"Watts shows us people, real souls like the people we sit next to on the bus, people who live down the hall, people who could be relatives."--Edward P. Jones
"Cheeky, urbane, and playful. Lorrie Moore meets Eudora Welty.--New Yorker
"These stories celebrate real people and their tenacious ability to break down life's locked doors."--O, the Oprah Magazine
