“Steven Barthelme’s new collection of short stories plays like the best of saddest love songs … Hush Hush more than deserves its own place on the mantle of celebrated contemporary short fiction collections.” —The Rumpus

“Poignant … this is one of the few noteworthy short story collections that we’ve come across this year.” —The Huffington Post

Hush Hush speaks quietly and plainly … deceptively artful and refined.” —The Texas Observer

“There is a pragmatic eloquence to Steven Barthelme’s writing, in the way his characters explain their decisions and their failures to live up to their potential…. it’s often beautiful and profound.”
