Editorial Reviews

“Bezmozgis’s pointed, emotionally resonant tales are so elegant they seem destined, like [Isaac] Babel’s for anthologies of classic fiction.”

— <em>The Globe and Mail</em>

“Scary good. . . . Not a line or note in the book rings false.”

— <em>Esquire</em>

“Remarkable short stories. David Bezmogis [has] a gift for swift, sharp storytelling.”

— <em>National Post</em>

“A generous, witty account of boyhood . . . rich [with] reverberating pathos [and] a sensualist’s delight in language. . . . Impressive.”

— <em>New York Times Book Review</em>

“What sets [Bezmozgis] apart . . . is his quiet command of unadorned language, his wry humour and his keen understanding of the human heart.”

— <em>Winnipeg Free Press</em>
