"'They make things big in America, ' is a phrase from 'The Old Olive Tree, ' a story worthy of Saroyan and one of 21 in Mike Maggio's vibrant collection, Letters from Inside. Maggio makes a big splash with this book, a most welcome yet quiet one, undulating ripples of deep and careful prose from the inside of the heart. Listen carefully as you read." Rafael Alvarez, Author, Journalist, and Television Writer

"Letters From Inside is a treasure chest of a book. Each story is different. A few are Kafkaesque. Sometimes Mike Maggio writes like a weaver or sculptor. Sometimes he is simply a magician when it comes to words. Letters From Inside is a collection of twenty-one stories that should be given a home on every bookshelf." E. Ethelbert Miller, Host of On The Margin WPFW 89.3 FM and author of If God Invented Baseball

"Mike Maggio's latest collection of short stories displays his talent, once again, for voice, scenario and characterization. What a delight it is to read these intricate portrayals--often reminiscent of folk tales with an ironic, frequently moral bite." Nathan Leslie, Author of Hurry Up and Relax and Best Small Fictions Series Editor
