Today at Paper Cuts, Gregory Cowles calls the anthology “pretty irresistible.” A “lot of it has to do with the tone,” he says. “[T]he usual regret, shame and pain are leavened here with a generous tablespoon of wry humor.”
Anthology editor and contributor Michael Taeckens has staggered more events through the end of the summer. Writers reading at those include my pal D.E. Rasso (see Susan Toepfer’s praise) and Michelle Greene, Josh Kilmer-Purcell, Jennifer Finney Boylan, Jami Attenberg, Taeckens himself, and more.
