"Never underestimate the secret ferocity of quiet women. In a vibrant collection of stories featuring an unforgettable cast of characters, Presman creates something intensely human out of mere words. She ensures readers see the fun alongside the fury, the heartiness inside the hardship, and the rich complexities of the memories that come out of the cupboard with the good dishes." — Stacy Bierlein, "A Vacation on the Island of Ex-Boyfriends"
“In precise and direct prose, Mary Ann Presman writes like a dream, creating in these 18 short stories a gallery of compelling characters in all manner of situations that feel real and true. She displays a deep understanding of what makes people tick, and not always in the best and kindest ways. But you will remember the residents of her world for keeps.” — Rick Kogan, Chicago Tribune A&E columnist.
