“There are grooms and trainers and bookmakers aplenty, but it’s the crazy woman who stuffs her house with other people’s garbage, the corrupt, know-it-all cop, and the pot-smoking floozy that provide the swing and verve.”—Boston Review
“Plattner’s stories prove again and again that you don’t have to be flashy to be good.”—Louisville Courier-Journal
“Written in spare, crystalline prose, the stories in Winter Money follow people who are each ‘a moment or two’ from failure or triumph, suspended in a heartbreaking instant when anything can happen.”—Hollins Critic
