“McGlynn’s superlatively crafted, deeply sympathetic debut story collection traces the spiritual agonies of Christians trying to make sense of their faith within the vicissitudes of human nature….” —Publishers Weekly

“When a young writer proves in a first collection that he is the real thing, when the stories are as riveting and haunting as David McGlynn’s are, the temptation is to ask how it is possible. McGlynn writes both elegantly and deeply about the trick of salvation and the strange consolation of suffering itself, about the sorrows of the faithful and the faith that’s required of the nonbeliever.”
Jane Hamilton, author of When Madeline Was Young
