Reviews

The stories that work have the fire and ice that loom over life and the magic that comes from a good story well and craftily told. --Boston Globe Each story is uncommonly good ... surprising, lively writing and believablyhuman characters.... Banks has a terrific eye, mordant yet affectionate, forthe bric-a-brac and the pathos of the American dream . -- Washington Post Book World Mesmerizing .... There are times when Banks's prose fairly dazzles. -- Publishers Weekly
