Review Quotes

1. A sparkling collection. "Time"
Powell takes short stories to places where I ve rarely seen them go. "Chicago Tribune"
Powerful . . . Powell has an almost unequaled ability to bring Southern colloquial speech to the page. "The New York Times"
Lyrically intense and full of the surreal juxtapositions you find in the flotsam of floodwaters: stories at once edgy and exuberant. "Kirkus Reviews""
