From Publishers Weekly
A gifted storyteller and a fine writer, Houston brings insight and an original perspective to the heavily trafficked gender divide in her short-story collection, which was a two-week PW bestseller in cloth.

Pam Houston is a gifted writer with a wicked sense of humor. She is a master of the short story genre.
When I first read this book, I thought cowboys were rugged and handsome. I've come to know this to be true.
Now, I am blessed to take their photographs for living.
A good short story is harder than you might imagine to write. Pam Houston does it best.
These stories are about "real men" who run rapids at high water, rescue one dog a year from the humane society, love white-tailed deer more than women, stalk Dall deer for the kill, and run fast away from commitment. They are also about the women who put up with these guys, written by a woman has, but only to warn her species. Pam Houston put on boots and took names.
Ladies, read this and laugh. You real men, read it for the profile of the woman you're looking for, but beware. Houston's got your number. You're country music, where "The men in the songs were all brutal or inexpressive and always sorry later."
