"The stories are as mesmerizing as they are terrifying, drawing the reader into the complex psychological experience of every subject they touch upon. This
collection demonstrates how Oates continues to push boundaries in her short fiction and tread in dangerous territory."
—Eric K. Anderson, Bearing Witness: Joyce Carol Oates Studies
"These are stories that resonate with authenticity and verve and pain and truth. Any collection edited by the National Book Award-winning author Oates deserves attention, but the contributors are deft and confident, and great writers without her imprimatur.... Authentic, powerful, visceral, moving, great writing."
—Seamus Scanlon, Library Journal
