Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Impeccably done.” Joyce Carol Oates, New York Times bestseller
“To have built up so distinguished a collection, each story excellent in its own way and each an original departure in relation to the others, is a triumph. ” New York Times
“She writes about people whom loneliness has driven slightly mad, but also about people who are secure and comforted; she explores childhood and old age, poverty and wealth, tragedy and comedy…Above all, Miss Stafford will not be hurried…This book is most solidly achieved.” New York Review of Books
