Editorial Reviews


"A cleverly conceived, character-driven, if overstuffed, anthology sure to delight and enchant." - Kirkus Reviews

"Richard R. Becker has made a stellar debut with 50 States! I fell in love with how each short story packs a punch and is memorable on its own." —
Readers' Favorite
"The author's writing flows from story to story effectively keeping readers wanting more." —
Entrada Reviews

"An impressive short story collection that will take you on a rollercoaster ride of emotions." — The Reading Bud

"Richard is a superb writer, with an eloquent tongue and a tremendous turn of phrase, and these gems are each a standalone high-brow work of art." —
Matt McAvoy Book Reviews

"The writing is gripping, the characters are regular people from all walks of life forced to survive with the hand that destiny dealt them, the action is fast and entertaining, and the atmosphere is immersive." —
The Audiobook Blog

"Written in sparse, understated prose reminiscent of Elizabeth Strout's 
Olive Kitteridge, Becker's tightly focused stories pack a punch." — IndieReader
