Praise

“A rich introduction (or a happy re-acquaintance) to Gordon’s talent.” —The Seattle Times“These characters are splendid in their ridiculous humanity. . . . Gordon’s new stories are deeper and more relaxed, but all provide a mesmeric read . . . you’ll want to inhale and savor at the same time.” —Entertainment Weekly“Breathtaking. . . . Voluptuous.” —Los Angeles Times“Carefully drawn and gracefully written, [Gordon’s] stories combine the intimacy of memoir with the shape and narrative energy of fiction. . . .Vivid and richly imagined." —Chicago Sun-Times
