“Delightful, sad and often magical. . . . Brockmeier’s small, carefully made worlds are like Steven Millhauser’s; they are definitely fantastic and miraculously, utterly human.” –The New York Times Book Review

“With so much madness abroad in the world, Brockmeier provides welcome magic. Without lapsing into the simplistic or the sentimental, the stories evoke a human desire to recall that childhood realm of fairy tale,” –Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

“Lyrical. . . . Brockmeier is clearly a talent. The stories are filled with the kinds of metaphors that make you see the world afresh.” —Shout

“The best pieces in this collection . . .allow that in some rare instances, storytelling has the power to redeem.” —The Village Voice

“[A] generous collection. . . . Brockmeier shows us a little bit of hope, a little light to see by, a plan for the future.” —Chicago Tribune
