“The …book has in my judgment the best claim for its consistent excellence and maximum variety of character, setting, action, and implication within a unity of personal experience and concerns. Targan is not overtly experimental, but he is strong, solid, graceful, and often very subtle.”—George P. Garrett

“Life, wit, and humor flow through every page. These 14 stories concern many things, but what they have in common is writing of power and beauty.”—Chicago Sun-Times

“There is a fresh directness here, a maturity not often found in those publishing their first stories. All collections of short fiction should have this book.”—Choice
