"In these remarkably intelligent and quirky stories Kate Blackwell sweeps the reader into a tableau as vivid as a Dutch painting, both startling and alive. These are harshly honest and generous stories embroidered with humor." - The Sheltering Sky

These are edgy lives filled with conflict and tension, stories that span decades. This book is a real treat for anyone who loves good writing." -Bookviews
“. . . the kind of truth that fiction gets at best.” -Raleigh (NC) News & Observer
