Reviews
"These tales are characterized by a winning lightness of touch and tone -- a fundamental generosity of spirit, dusted with nostalgia -- that make his first book of fiction for adults go down sweetly indeed." --Washington Post

"Asim successfully delves into politics, domestic violence, racial identity, young love, and more in this humorous and poignant collection..." -Publishers Weekly

"With his debut work of fiction, the Guggenheim Fellow proves himself to be a promising storyteller." -Library Journal

"This fiction rings true." -Kirkus Reviews
