    " Every one's a hit. Harrowing, brilliant, funny. Awfully good. "

    " Had to take this one slow, only one story at a time interspersed with some lighter subject reading. Even though this author reminded me heavily of Cormac McCarthy, who I did not enjoy, this one I definitely wanted to keep reading. Thanks to my friend Steve for this recommendation ! "

    " William Gay is one of my favorite writers. His gift for language is astounding. "

    " Gay's stories, like his novels, are atmospheric, dark, and deeply satisfying. It's the voice, though, that grabs. AFter one paragraph you know you are in the hands of an assured, confident writer. In addition to a formidable vocabulary (stygian?) he reinvents language, creates compounds that make poetic sense : hearthammer, foldup, halfbent. Later, more dashes appear to legitimize his creations, which is a shame, but what can you do? If kittens, rainbows and bloodless murder mysteries are your favorite things, steer clear of this southern gothic writer who shrinks from nothing. "The Paperhanger" in particular, is not for the faint of heart. "
