Editorial Reviews

Review

"A masterful collection laced with dark humor, aching grief and great tenderness. Geoghegan's stories take us around the world, from a beach house on the Atlantic all the way to Bali and Rome and the quiet power of her voice reaches both heart and bone." —Francesca Marciano, author of The Other Language, (stories) and novels Rules of The Wild, The End of Manners,and Casa Rossa.


“A masterful collection laced with dark humor, aching grief and great tenderness. Geoghegan’s stories take us around the world, from a beach house on the Atlantic all the way to Bali and Rome and the quiet power of her voice reaches both heart and bone.” —Francesca Marciano, author of The Other Language, Rules of The Wild, The End of Manners, and Casa Rossa


"Eightball’s magical thinking leaves me wonderstruck. If Lucia Berlin is early Patti Smith, then Elizabeth Geoghegan is Blondie and Joan Jett and Florence and the Machine in one big literary sandwich." —Susan Bradley Smith, author of the verse novels The Postcult Heart, The Screaming Middle, and Beds For All Who Come


"Geoghegan's eloquently told stories examine themes of loneliness, sex, addiction, and grief through the lens of unfamiliar cultures and languages. The thread that holds it all together is Geoghegan's cool, articulate demeanor and masterful writing." —Kirkus


"Let Elizabeth Geoghegan’s provocative, poetic prose be your guide through eightball, her collection of eight short stories that emphasize the different features that love, intimacy, desire, and lust can bring out in a person." —Bailey Drumm, Atticus Review
