" The stories in Bobbie Ann Mason’s remarkable collection read like poetic transcriptions of day-to-day life. With her keen eye and ear for late twentieth-century popular culture, Mason can render a photograph of a brightly lit supermarket or a bit of wisdom from the Donahue show. This special edition of a beloved local author’s work includes a new foreword by George Ella Lyon, Kentucky writer and friend of the author.

One of those rare writers who, by concentrating their attention on a few square miles of native turf, are able to turn up new and surprisingly wide worlds for the delighted reader. -- New York Review of Books

Her first collection shows not only how good she can be but how consistently good she remains. . . .Not a single page lags. . . not one among sixteen stories is less than impressive. -- New York Times Book Review

Will keep you fascinated and guessing over the course of the whole book. -- Rockland (ME) Courier-Gazette
