"Rarely is a writer so recklessly and deliciously weird also so warm, so approachable, and so -well, lovable. To praise Matthew Simmons' work for its tremendous invention, its hilarity, its joyful incongruity is easy enough. These stories possess all of these qualities in abundance. But they also do the thing that Wallace Stevens once insisted that fiction should: they give pleasure. More of it than I have received from any contemporary collection in a long, long time." -Matthew Specktor, author of American Dream Machine.
