Review quote

Praise for John Mantooth "Mantooth tests his characters, through temptation and disaster; it is a grim joy to watch them fall, or claw their way through the storm to glimpse a clear sky. Immoral or righteous, they are human and beautiful in all their darkness. . . . Perhaps the most interesting thing about this book is the variety and Mantooth's ability to leave no doubt these stories belong in the same collection. This display of humanity is beautifully written and thought-provoking, and yet remains devoid of the saccharin to which such works can fall victim."
--The Crow's Caw
