The wonderful Hosho McCreesh, author of For All These Wretched, Beautiful, & Insignificant Things So Uselessly & Carelessly Destroyed... (sunnyoutside press, 2008) and co-author of Sunlight at Midnight, Darkness at Noon (Orange Alert Press, 2009) on my novella Grease Stains, Kismet, and Maternal Wisdom:

"The core of the book's charm is David & Samantha. And most moving is their conversation. Like the wonderful Hepburn/Cary Grant/Jimmy Stewart movies of the 40's, what makes the book sing is two people COMMUNICATING, figuring it out, making the impossible possible, trying and failing and succeeding, making it happen. And the book is every bit as charming as those movies: Bringing Up Baby; The Philadelphia Story; His Girl Friday...there's a reason these films are so beloved, and [Grease Stains] does what these films do: it brings us to ourselves. We want to be there and be part of it; we've been there and were part of it; we loved and were loved; we tried and failed and succeeded; we made it happen."

...Grease Stains returns soon. Yes it does.
