Praise For We Were Lucky with the Rain (stories)

“Susan Buttenwieser is wise, out-loud funny, awe-inspiringly empathic, and the wielder of a marvelously dangerous and whetted wit. Buy, read, and revel; Buttenwieser is the best there is.”
—John Reed

"...Buttenwieser’s sketches are more like pathology slides of the human condition than snapshots of happy family picnics."
