"Steve Almond is one of our finest literary provocateurs. His stories are without equal in their beautiful terrible honesty. Stylish and finely wrought, these are tales with the force of life itself." — Junot Díaz, author of The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao
"These wonderful, wickedly hilarious stories have forgiveness at their core. Steve Almond's characters are sons and fathers, inveterate gamblers, thwarted dreamers, the mothers of children gone astray, and God Bless America teaches us how to love every one of them. Almond always has a near to the ground for 'the dumb throb, the frantic seep' of human hope, which his prose transmutes into music." — Karen Russell, author of Swamplandia!
"You could drop Steve Almond onto any strange planet and within days he'd beam back a story written by an insider, maybe even a native, that creeps you out it's so familiar and strange. His imagination is chameleon and ruthless, his fiction masterful right down to the sentence, the word." — Brad Watson, author of Aliens in the Prime of Their Lives
"I can't resist saying it: God bless Steve Almond. And God bless his inexhaustible imagination, compassion, and élan. This is a wonderful collection of stories, sharp-witted and big-hearted in equal measure." — Sarah Shun-Lien Bynum, author of Ms. Hempel Chronicles
"Steve Almond is one of our most prolific-fearless-political-hairy-intelligentsexy-hilarious writers. He makes me shake my head with sadness one page, snort coffee out my nose the next. And he makes me care deeply about his characters, so many of them wrong in the head and right in the heart, down on their luck but clinging to the desperate hope that the next hand of cards will turn up flush." — Benjamin Percy, author of The Wilding
