"Rick Bass is a national treasure." "Carl Hiassen""

"Rick Bass is one of the best writers of his generation." "George Plimpton""
Praise for "For A Little While"
""For a Little While" is nothing short of remarkable. In the powerful lyricism of his exquisitely wrought prose, Rick Bass conveys not only the ordinary thoughts and impulses of his characters, but also those moments of pure sensation-convincing in every physical, mental, and emotional detail-when the intensity of life exists at a pitch almost beyond language. Even amid the threat of annihilation, Bass finds the promise of redemption. Grace has always been the great, elusive subject of his short fiction, and the extraordinary, transcendent stories collected here pursue it in myriad and seamless ways."
"Joyce Carol Oates""
