Reviews

"Both hilarious and honest . . . Gautreaux applies love and compassion, knowledge and ingenuity to create something superb." --The Seattle Times

"Startling and redemptive . . . These stories suggest . . . that to be alive means being open to grief and accident, chance and wonder." --The Chicago Tribune

"Move Garrison Keilor's Lake Wobegon stories to Louisiana, add heat and Tabasco, and the result would be Welding With Children." --The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"Gautreaux has perfect pitch . . . it's his fiction's coarse incongruities--epitomized by the book's title--that prove the limitless possibilities of limited geography." --The New York Times Book Review

"Finely balanced, sweet and gritty." --The San Francisco Chronicle

"A pleasure from start to finish." --The Cleveland Plain-Dealer
