Reviews

'A natural storyteller.'--James Wood, New Yorker

'Garner's stories share characteristics of the postcard: they flash before us carefully recorded images that remind us of harsher realities not pictured. And like postcards they are economically written, a bit of conversation is transcribed, a memory recalled, an event noted, scenes pass as if viewed from a train--momentarily, distinct and tantalizing in their beauty.'--New York Times

'A perfect introduction for first-timers who have not yet experienced the pleasures of Garner's writing.' --Sydney Morning Herald
