Acerca de


A good short story is a visceral thing, but it is rare to find stories as elegant, as perfectly made as Elizabeth Tallent s, that put a scare into us. Tallent is a magician: her characters get sawed in half by life and stand up whole. --Valerie Trueblood, author of "Search Party" and "Seven Loves""

The first pleasure here is the glitter and darkness of the prose only Tallent can produce; but the profounder gift in these stories is the author s empathy, a tireless empathy, her knowledge of her characters peculiar entitlements and pangs and assumptions. --Louis B. Jones, author of "Innocence" and "Ordinary Money""

Elizabeth Tallent is, and always has been, a vivid, meticulous, and astutely inviting writer. These new stories vitally tell us how things are for us, in the most acute and memorable ways. Her ear is perfect; her gaze searing and unmistakable. --Richard Ford"

In her fourth collection, Tallent explores the spaces between people through 10 expertly crafted stories. . . . Tallent s collection offers a smart, thought-provoking study of desire and disappointment. --"Publishers Weekly""

Tallent s assured voice is a pleasure to follow through this book. . . . An ambitious and wide-ranging set of stories that creates empathy for most of its characters due to Tallent s generous imagination. --"Kirkus Reviews""

The characters in these stories have been around the block a few times. They are often exes. But they are no match for Tallent, who, in a finely articulated style, shows herself to be quite deft at throwing monkey wrenches into the machinery of complacence. --Carol Anshaw, author of "Carry the One""

Elizabeth Tallent s style is so distinctive, and it s the kind of writing I so enjoy, never obvious, full of complex thought and perception, so boldly ambitious. --Tessa Hadley, author of "Clever Girl""

[Tallent] brings an immense complexity and dimension to the domestic affairs of the heart. At times, these stories almost veer toward the epic, emotionally speaking, and are reminiscent of the muscular, sharp-eyed narratives of the late Robert Stone. --"San Francisco Chronicle""

Excellent. . . . In these stories, [Tallent] continues to explore relationships on the brink of transformation. --"San Jose Mercury News""

Enchanting. . . . Immediately engaging. . . . The ability to create characters who force us to withhold judgment and leave us gasping at their absolute, solid reality isn t the result of any special kindness or goodness on the part of the author.--"New York Times" Book Review"
