"Whether Dorothy Barnett is contemplating a father’s indiscretions, sidestepping unpleasant youthful losses, or navigating scenes of a ten-year-old at a domino game free-for-all, her storytelling is the next best thing to living it. Her descriptions of bittersweet losses were enough to jog my own memories about the past. I read these fifteen stories (almost fiction and almost fact, as Ms. Barnett calls them) in one sitting at four in the morning. They are a wonderful teaser for what I hope will be many more stories to come. A must-read book!"
