Reviews

"A blue-collar, Rust Belt romantic to his generous, enthusiastic core, Dougherty has filled eight prior volumes with character sketches, pool hall odes (he now works in a pool hall), vaunting declarations, outcries, celebrations, protests, and promises, 'in the rusting cities in the rusting places where we leaned against the wall, in the smoky haze of bar smoke and breath.'" -Publisher's Weekly
