Critical Praise

I scan the tables of contents of magazines, looking for Antonya Nelson's name, hoping that she has decided to bless us again. She's absolutely one of my favorites among story writers today, and I envy the reader who has yet to discover her marvelous work.

——Michael Chabon

When Antonya Nelson passes into the next world she will have a Preferred Customer Card -- along with a very few others who write flawless sentences, and make characters who look at life straight on, without flinching. These wonderful stories are made by a master, and are thrilling.
