Reviews

"By turns touching, humorous and sad, the stories, one especially, offer glimmers of hope for Nick's redemption."
--Anthony Bukowski, Star Tribune

"In these stories, Nick encounters his irresolution, his frequent infidelities, his failure to either love or leave Annie, his shortcomings as a novelist, and his inability to save his mother. One by one, these stories chronicle the trials of a young man exploring the dark places of his soul, grappling with what he finds there, and, step-by-painful-step, learning what it is to journey into adulthood."
--Michael Beeman, ForeWord

"Mullins crafts one great image after another in Greetings from Below, and his lingering depiction of scene and setting is consistently moving. . . . These are lush stories, and the descriptions in them are so satisfying that they give Las Vegas a depth and solidity that the city, by its very nature, tries to elude."
--Theodore Wheeler, Prairie Schooner
