“Before the Great Troubling offers a quirky, wise, and memorable picture of life in our shadow-filled century.”
–Ann Fisher Wirth, author of Carta Marina
On Notes toward the Story and Other Stories: “A remarkably unique collection that both invokes and takes you away from everyday life–part Raymond Carver, part Gabriel Garcia Marquez. Spare, rich, real, surprising, and absolutely wonderful.”
–Jennifer Paddock, author of A Secret Word, and Point Clear.
