Synopses & Reviews

Review:

"We often speak of finding a voice in fiction. Wendy Rawlings, in her evocative stories, has rejuvenated the American idiom and invented a whole new accent. These stories speak to you in spades, an excavation of gorgeous language and striated meanings. Listen. You can't help but listen." Michael Martone, author of Fort Wayne Is Seventh on Hitler's List and Pensees: The Thoughts of Dan Quayle

Review:

"In the strange, wonderful world of Come Back Irish, you'll meet the people in Wendy Rawlings's startling tales who are the survivors of fractured families. With heartbreaking clarity, Ms. Rawlings exposes the jittery dislocations of contemporary life, the precise and shattering moments when we flounder in the waves of memory, drowning in our own secret seas of unrecoverable loss." Melanie Rae Thon, author of Sweet Hearts and Girls in the Grass
