Critical Praise

“Bezmozgis’s pointed, emotionally resonant tales are so elegant they seem destined, like [Isaac] Babel’s for anthologies of classic fiction.” —The Globe and Mail

“Remarkable short stories. David Bezmogis [has] a gift for swift, sharp storytelling.” —National Post

“A generous, witty account of boyhood . . . rich [with] reverberating pathos [and] a sensualist’s delight in language. . . . Impressive.” —New York Times Book Review

“What sets [Bezmozgis] apart . . . is his quiet command of unadorned language, his wry humour and his keen understanding of the human heart.” —Winnipeg Free Press

“Scary good. . . . Not a line or note in the book rings false.” —Esquire
