A fierce book, edgy, urgent and unconsolingly honest. Daniel Coshnear writes with mordant wit and the kind of emotional exactitude that clear a readers vision the way a sharp new flavor clears and challenges the palate. He is a thrilling discovery.
Rosellen Brown, judge
Dan Coshnears first collection of stories is wise and true in the manner of Walt Whitman, Paul Robeson, and Woodie Guthrie. Dan understands America and its preoccupations with work and love, conflict and joy, and everything in between. He writes with an assurance that makes me believe that language can still save the world.
