Editorial Reviews

Review

...engaging...Reflecting Sloan's acute attention to humanity, her characters are varied and have depths that make them individuals I can care about...The book leaves a flavor that lingers-not sweetness, but the mineral clarity of a deep well. It's a satisfying swig of human longing and learning --Story Circle Book Reviews

...exceptional stories by a talented writer who understands that emotions are sometimes indefinable and conflicting, that facing adversity can require more than just courage, and that human feeling is complex and intricate. . .. a layered exploration of both human weakness and strength. . .. --Windy City Reviews

It is not surprising that Lynn Sloan was a portrait photographer, nor that she has turned to fiction writing. Her bent is an exploration of the truths of the human heart, and this collection demonstrates her remarkable gift for it. Possessing hugely different personalities and backgrounds, the characters are compelling, even those with small roles in the stories. Sloan is inventive and fearless in the situations in which she places her protagonists, and the results are painful, sometimes funny, and always illuminating. In every story her continual flashes of insight, so precisely rendered, remind us again and again how heartbreaking in all its complexities is the human dilemma.

--Sharon Solwitz, author of Once, in Lourdes: A NovelBlood and Milk: Stories, and Bloody Mary: A Novel --This text refers to the paperback edition.
