With a sharp eye and tough warmth, Lisa Blower strikes a new chord in regional and working-class fiction. This fabulous collection of her award-winning short stories is dominated by the working-class matriarch. She makes the bleak funny, and brings to life the silent histories and harsh realities of those living on the margins. It knew exactly how to play with and exploit the potential of its naive narrative voice—what to say but, far more importantly, what not to say—quite apart from its wit, and the undercurrent of sadness it explored without ever being sentimental. If you enjoy funny, tough, sharp, surprising and unsentimental writing about family life, buy this book.
