"Minneapolis gets the star treatment in the latest installment of Belt Publishing's City Anthology series. The collection features contributions from an impressive list of current-award winning authors, nearly all of whom have either lived in or worked in the city. . . . Collectively the writers paint a thorough and sometimes amusing picture of our state and the people in it." --Nicole Hvidsten, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"In nearly every piece, I almost couldn't help feeling a little Geiger-like clicking yes! as the city I know and love was described anew, over and over, in ways I've never seen articulated." -- Weston Cutter, Minneapolis Star Tribune
"Minneapolis is known for its surfeit of excellent writers, so it's not surprising that a collection of writing about the city by the writers who know it best would turn out to be a reader's delight. ... For one varied, top-notch taste of that literary splendor, don't miss reading Under Purple Skies." -- Lynette Lamb, Minnesota Alumni
