"VISITING HOURS unhinges our anxieties about illness. These stories are funny, touching, and buoyed high by the surprising twists of human love. Thank goodness for a book that paints bright, savvy colors on white hospital walls."
Alyson Hagy - author of Snow, Ashes (Graywolf, 2007), as well as another novel and three story collections
"Why aren't there more books like this one? This anthology is alive, and it's electric. Every piece in here is full of heart and packed with surprise. Dan Wickett has done a great job of finding work by writers who matter. Here's to him--and to them."
Steve Yarbrough - author of The End of California (Knopf, 2006) as well as three other novels and three short story collections.
