Reviews
"Readers for whom the expression 'foreign literature' means the work of Canada's Alice Munro stand to have their eyes opened wide and their reading exposure exploded as they encounter works from places such as Croatia, Bulgaria, and Macedonia (and, yes, from more familiar terrain, such as Spain, the UK, and Russia)."-- "Booklist, Starred Review"
"[I]deal for browsing and has something for almost every taste. . . we can be thankful to have so many talented new voices to discover."-- "Library Journal"
"For one book to range so widely in geographical terms is a praiseworthy achievement in itself; to do so and encompass so many delightfully singular, fascinatingly overlapping talents is an achievement of another order.-- "Wall Street Journal"
The 29 stories here are excellent and frequently brilliant, with none of the workshopped feel of so many of their American counterparts. Of interest to literary readers of English on both sides of the water.-- "Kirkus Reviews"
