"Reveals Stephen Dixon as one of the two great American storytellers today. The other is George Saunders."—El PaÍs"Stephen Dixon is one of the great secret masters—too secret. I return again and again to his stories for writerly inspiration, moral support and comic relief... Please read him, you."—Jonathan Lethem"Stephen Dixon has somehow been overlooked as one of the masters of recording how a person thinks, of what it feels like to be alive inside a brain... He should be remembered as one of postmodern modernism's greats."—Blake Butler
