"These stories are full of surprises, jolts, and lightning strikes of recognition. Do yourself a favor and read Ron Carlson."—Stephen King

The New York Times

Carlson achieves one hard balancing act after the next, and each of these 33 stories -- from the more uncanny early imaginings to the more plausibly grounded later pieces -- finds some way to prickle the neck hairs. We are caught off guard, even as we feel the practiced hand of the maker. — Sven Birkerts
