Praise for Bernard Grant
Bernard Grant’s stories are compassionate, deeply perceptive explorations of what happens to people who can’t move forward. Trapped by circumstance, by past traumas, by themselves, his characters manage to hope for different lives, even as they accept that they probably won’t get them. They speak to each other, and to us, in ways that are simultaneously complex and straightforward, but always believably, and inevitably poignant. These are quietly unsettling stories that sit uneasily in your heart long after you’ve finished them.
— Suzanne Berne, author of the Dogs of Littlefield, The Ghost at the Table, and Crime in the Neighborhood
