Product Details

Praise

“What Collins does best is turn an apparently simple phrase into a numinous moment.”
The New Yorker

“It is difficult not to be charmed by Collins, and that in itself is a remarkable literary accomplishment.”
The New York Review of Books

“A brilliant comic sally…a wonderful, sly, and moving collection.”
San Francisco Chronicle

“[Collins] takes the mundane thing and shows you its mystery. And he takes the mysterious and strips it naked.”
The Washington Post
