From the Back Cover:
"Powerful . . . Fiction of a very high order . . . Frederick Busch at his best."
--Los Angeles Times Book Review

"[These] provocative tales center around relationships gone awry, families grappling with loss, and lonely men and women struggling with remnants of love . . . . What Busch ultimately serves is a heady and rewarding brew made up of people as real as ourselves, groping for and sometimes even discovering the comforts of love."
--USA Today

"Memorable . . . [The] stories leap off the page with astonishing resilience and vigor. . . . Busch is a chronicler of domestic manners whose insights into family hierarchies transcend the factual to attain poetry and truth."
--The Boston Globe
