The New York Times Book Review
William Gay is richly gifted: a seemingly effortless storyteller...a writer of prose that's fiercely wrought, pungent in detail yet poetic in the most welcome sense.
The Seattle Times
One perfect tale follows another, leaving you in little doubt that
Gay is a genuine poet of the ornery, the estranged, the disenfranchised, crafting stories built to last.
A writer of striking talent.
Every story is a masterpiece...in the Southern tradition of Carson McCullers, Flannery O'Connor, and William Faulkner.
Gay confirms his place in the Southern fiction pantheon.
