Reviews
PRAISE FOR PETER WORTSMAN"Peter Wortsman's compressed fictions strike swift and hard, like a good Zen whack that awakens enlightenment." --Tom Christensen"Wortsman . . . connect[s] the power of the dream narrative to conscious language to create unique works
that walk a curious line between fiction and poetry." --Russell Edson

"A master of the telling detail, Wortsman is one of those
rare writers upon whom nothing, as Henry James put it, is ever lost." --Marjorie
Perloff

"Marvelous writing, wonderful craft, and the breath of
imagination . . . [Wortsman] succeeds so well in his craft and art that it reads
'artless' and 'spontaneous, ' which to me is the highest of compliments." --Hubert
Selby, Jr.


PRAISE FOR ODD BIRDS & FAT CATS"What a wonderful collaboration, and between father and
daughter, sure to be a bestseller." --Kate Taverna"Aurélie is an amazing artist." --Jeannette Watson
