"'Ashes,' a daughter's story of her dying mother, is the little masterpiece of the group, lovely in its grief and guaranteed to show up in future anthologies."
"Haunting and understated . . . These stories explore the failures of love–erotic and filial—with a sure spareness that's reminiscent of Ann Beattie."
"Stunning wit and sparkle . . . Thompson's prose is tight and resonant; her view of the world is ironic and full of feeling."
—Washington Book Review
"An undeniably talented writer."
"Rare and wonderful . . . In the merciless glare of L.A. hip or N.Y. trendy, Thompson's women cast a cold eye, hesitate, hold their noses, and take the plunge."
—St. Louis Post-Dispatch
"Deftly crafted and emotionally charged . . . Sandra Thompson eloquently captures the fears and doubts of being an independent woman in the eighties."
