Amy Sage Webb has an obvious love for, and command of, both the human language and storytelling that few can match. Her work is both insightful and inspiring. She is able to create well-rounded, believable characters with human thoughts, fears and flaws, and her plots are layered and engrossing. I strongly recommend this book, and look forward to more from her.

Amy has such an amazingly strong sense of confidence with her language. As a reader, the best feeling is to know you are in good hands; then you can lay back and enjoy the read.

Amy Sage Webb's Save Your Own Life should be read by all lovers of contemporary short fiction, particularly those who are interested in literature that is concerned with the written language and the significance of geographical setting. This collection's stories take ordinary people in everyday circumstances in commonplace settings, and reveal how the ordinary is, when seen acutely, surreal, etched in the mind like a life-changing dream. A pair of women's shoes can become a powerful metaphor for selfhood. A college-town bar in southeastern Ohio can become a place where a young woman's future life comes close to being determined. Indeed, all settings verge on being characters, with psychological baggage and uncomfortable tales to tell. And all of these stories are intensely focused on the mystery and power of the written word, the well of language from which reality comes into being.
