Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

In the 11 stories of "Five Acre Virgin," the narrator describes growing up with her mother and older brother, a petty thief. The 10 entries in "The Travelling Entertainer" illuminate the plight of loners in big cities. "The author trusts readers to look beneath the surface for profound meanings in stories whose ambiguities and implications stir the imagination," wrote PW.
