"Compelling...Falco shows a deft touch at keeping his characters empathetic while maintaining their occasionally disturbing flaws."--Library Journal

In this present time, Edward Falco's edgy, intense stories--ever conscious of the dark and violent forces at work in the world--are not only stunningly relevant but profoundly important. Artistically, too, Falco needs to be heard--he is an all-too-rare master of both character and plot. Sabbath Night in the Church o f the Piranha is a truly outstanding collection. --Robert Olen Butler

"His fans will relish this collection. Readers unfamiliar with his work...will remember Edward Falco's name from now on...His prose is alternately haunting and tender, comforting and disturbing. Edward Falco's writing beautifully explores the lights and shadows of human existence."--Midwest Book Review

"[A] great collection....Interestingly in spite of these being shorts, in most cases the beleaguered hero seems developed enough to star in a novel. The audience will appreciate the genius of Edward Falco, as in almost every entry, a reader can picture themselves falling into the same type calamity that beguiled the respective lead character."--Harriet Klausner

"Falco's stories resonate with a quiet compassion for his characters, even those who make choices of terrible moral consequence."--Style Weekly
