Read the interview!

“Lynne Barrett belongs in the top tier of short-story writers in America today. Her unforgettable characters, poker-face wit, and sly plots make for an intensely enjoyable experience.”
—Kelly Cherry, author of The Woman Who

“It is entirely impossible to predict what you’re going to get when you start a Lynne Barrett story: a taut tale of adultery and murder, a wry evocation of romance among the bubble, a gossip columnist who spits toads.

—Steve Almond, author of Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life
