“Steven Huff is a master stylist and an American original. He has traveled the winding roads to the base of the human heart, mapping them through every strange and delirious curve. What a pleasure to be along for the ride.” — Jedediah Berry, author of THE MANUAL OF DETECTION

“A cornucopia of marvelous and various Americana. Huff’s fictions sometimes shock, never cheat, always instruct, and persist in the memory, as real as the best and worst days of our lives.” –Sterling Watson, author of SWEET DREAM BABY

“Huff’s characters occupy the edges, the rich ecotones between city and rural, wealthy and poor, native and wandering, needy and full. They are also buffeted by the fates, living and dying not by chance but as organized by some all-seeing, -knowing, -powerful hand with a sardonic sense of irony and humor.” — Stephen Lewandowski, author of UNDER FOOT
