Editorial Reviews

Review

'''An ingenious gathering of poignant leapfrogging . . . a muscular memorializing . . . a sly haunting.'' This is the book that is everything Amato says it is and is not. It bounces on water, refuses to be paraphrased, and invites itself to dinner. Buy it by the case while there is still time.'' --Cole Swensen
