I first read Mr. McBride's novel because his mother and I went to the same high school and grew up in the same town. I keep reading his books because they're entertaining and uplifting. He's an author I'd recommend to anyone interested in a great contemporary American storyteller.

Wonderfully entertaining stories from a master storyteller! Just another reason among many why James McBride is one of America's best contemporary authors.

Insanely fantastically smart, poignant, and funny (when called for) short stories. James McBride has considerable range as a storyteller and this collection of stories proves that point. I hadn't read Mr. McBride in a while and this collection reminded me, hot damn! the Man can write. Highly recommended!
