Reviews

"Megan Staffel does rural and urban, adolescence and adulthood, tough and tender, story and novella, with equal felicity and grace. The range of this collection - emotional and formal - is as astonishing as her rich and tender evocation of what it is to be alive. This is a book with a rich and vigilant spirit, built to linger and bloom." MICHAEL PARKER "Each of these vividly imagined, richly peopled stories invites the reader into a complete world, and each demonstrates how well Megan Staffel understands the degree to which our lives are defined by family, place and money. In prose both lyrical and colloquial she depicts the lives of characters hovering on the edge of mystery. A lovely and illuminating collection." MARGOT LIVESEY"
