The title story is pure poetry."-- Russell Banks, "New York Times Book Review""A dazzling array of short stories . . . Kingsolver's knowledge of human nature, and especially domestic relationships, is breathtaking."-- "Publishers Weekly""Read "Homeland and Other Stories" and you will feel glad to be alive. You are delighted by a gifted storyteller. You are strengthened and healed by the toughness and tenderness she discerns in humanity's daily rounds."-- "Newsday""Kingsolver is an extraordinary storyteller." -- "Chicago Tribune""Kingsolver's humanity sounds the clearest note.telling us about characters in the middle of their days, who live as we really do, from one small incident of awareness to the next." -- "Los Angeles Times""Delightful."-- "New York Woman""Kingsolver understands in an uncanny way the significance of the ordinary, the fleeting moment that may become lost or become catharsis. She writes with refreshing clarity, humor and honesty."-- "Detroit Free Press"
