Editorial Reviews

Review

"His characters are memorable ones, their dilemmas familiar, their judgments and actions not always for the best. Mr. Griffin’s writing deserves a wide audience." —The Globe and Mail

"This fine fine collection evokes echoes of the plain and piercing voice of Raymond Carver. These stories upended me: they are strong, surprising and full of heart. The size of the soul looms large in Daniel Griffin’s writing." —David Bergen

"Griffin’s at his best when he explores the intricacies and heartaches of family relationship and crisis. Here, in Stopping for Strangers, I believe we’re witnessing the emergence of a future master. " —Gail Dargatz Anderson

"It only takes a page or two to conclude that Daniel Griffin values precision—a precision not of meticulous detail, but of economy of the extraneous shorn away until a vital core is reached." —Jim Bartley, The Globe and Mail

"Daniel Griffin is among the nation's best when it comes to short story writing." —Elliot Ferguson, Kingstin Whig-Standard

"Those who read Stopping for Strangers and give the stories the time and attention they deserve will be handsomely rewarded. It's like putting the needle to an exquisitely rare vintage LP." —Keith Cadieux, Winnipeg Review

"The merits of Stopping for Strangers emerge ultimately from the care Griffin takes in establishing his characters in the grey zone where most us live most of the time, that place between our best intentions and worst impulses." —Joel Yanofsky, Montreal Review of Books

"Stopping for Strangers is an unusually accomplished first collection...at once honed and expansive, where precise, direct language masks incisive emotional complexity and stark psychological depth." —David Berry, National Post
