“Ms. Ciresi’s characters…are artfully balanced, charged with currents of despair, but never lugubrious and often funny. What jolts the reader through these pieces is the consistent blasts of vitality in the author’s prose.”
The New York Times Book Review

“Sharp-eyed, gently humorous fiction whose characters linger in the mind.”
–Kirkus Reviews

“Elegant works of fiction.”
