Reviews

This is storytelling at its best. Strongly recommended.

--Library Journal

Meinke has a satiric eye, a mixture of black and droll humor, a compassion for misfits, a keen sense of the absurd, and an understanding of the myriad of forces moving the human head and heart.

--Studies in Short Fiction
The Piano Tuner exhibits strong and consistent writing throughout. Meinke's poetic skill is evident in his ability to jar a reader with a single line. . . . He provides insight at arm's length, asking not necessarily that the reader care about the characters yet almost forcing him to understand them.--Washington Post Book World
