“In each story, the human need for love, recognition, and self-respect leads the protagonists to some extreme, and often very odd, acts and behaviors–yet Boone’s skill is such that we come to believe, with them, that their acts not only make sense, but are almost inevitable.”
—Kristine Morris, Foreword Reviews
