Reviews

"These stories evoke places with a sharp, sensuous and at times magical skill. They also dramatize characters and states of mind with a fierce truthfulness and sense of understanding. Horack's style has a beautiful edge to it; the range of his sympathy makes this a wonderful collection."--Colm Tóibín "These stories are alive with feeling, they are strong and intelligent, they explore the geography of a place and a time and a people--and they explore the geography of a place and a time and a people--and they explore it unforgettably. Skip Horack is a writer to watch." --John L'Heureux
"These stories are the real deal, the way Larry Brown's and Raymond Carver's stories are real. They move at depth with what can only be called a great and authentic soul. This is a special book, and the announcement of a wonderful writer and storyteller."--Rick Bass
