Critical Praise

"FREDERICK BUSCH IS ONE OF OUR VERY BEST SHORT STORY WRITERS. . . . [These] characters are eloquent and even quite brilliant. "


"[A] SEARING COLLECTION . . . which treats the subject of love as though it were the backbone of a page turning thriller. Busch's writing is so poetically precise and refined, so unsentimental, that the alienation of his characters is all the more devastating. "

——Entertainment Weekly

"RADIANT. . . . An exemplary collection of incandescent storytelling filled with electrifying truths. Despite the implied command of the title, don't keep this book a secret. Once you've read it, tell everyone. "

——Chicago Tribune
