Review quote

"There is enough energy in this book to shake a house." -- Clyde Edgerton "One of the truly impressive short story writers of his generation." -- George Plimpton "Rick Bass owns a durable and authentic voice. I read The Watch with intense pleasure, wondering at the skill of a young writer who can both frighten and amaze. This is a superb debut." -- Jim Harrison
