"Immediate, approachable, and human." A most appreciated The New York Stories review indeed.
Quite so frankly it is. Excerpt? Word.
"When read all together, the patchwork Tanzer weaves can finally be truly appreciated. It reminds me of Don Carpenter's The Class of '49 – which, if you know Carpenter, is high praise. Tanzer's characters weave in and out here, and the fictional town of Two Rivers very much becomes a character of its own. As for the people – they run the gamut from fully broken or insane to pensive and almost content. Their relationships are laid bare as fragile and tenuous arrangements, forever just a twist (or storm) from breaking apart."
