Product Details


“Jim Shepard [is] an outrageously versatile and gifted fiction writer.” —The Washington Post

“[Shepard’s] stories come bearing enough unimpeachable detail to ensure they never sink into the mush of a half-baked world. . . . [His] approach gives the individual stories heft and [his] collections a dizzying range.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Arresting. . . . [Shepard] has a knack for compressing a novel’s worth of life into 30 or 40 pages.” —The Boston Globe
“An astonishingly powerful demonstration of fiction’s capacity to transport us across time and space. . . . An absolute pleasure to read.” —The Christian Science Monitor
“Stirring. . . . The title story . . . left me weeping.” —Polly Rosenwaike, San Francisco Chronicle
