Nice Things Said Re: EWN

    "Mr. Wickett is that rarely heard from but best of all possible reviewers - the dedicated and knowledgeable fan. He writes clean-cutting and fresh reviews that represent a sensibility unspoiled by over-exposure to the biz of books, but deeply in love with them." Daniel Woodrell, author, Winter's Bone

    "Dan Wickett is a reader's best friend. Not only does he read and trenchantly review new work, but he looks back to books that deserve ongoing readership. I've lost track of the number of times he's led me to boks that I overlooked (or never knew about), and that were a delight. There aren't many reviewers I will let shape my library, but Dan Wickett is one." Erin McGraw, author, The Baby Tree

    « Short Story Month - More Places to Visit | Main | Short Story Month - Dream of the Cabbage Girl by Donna D. Vitucci »

    May 12, 2009



    I bought this collection in 2000 or 2001 without ever having heard of the writer, just picked it off the shelf in a B&N, and loved it. I loaned my copy to a friend, who returned it ugly and water-damaged, but I've kept it anyway, and have gone back several times to read it again, especially the first few stories, which were for me the strongest ones.

    Man, that's why I hate loaning AND borrowing books. I have three kids and some dogs and worry non-stop that a borrowed book is about to be messed up.

    The reason I went back to this collection, which I just bought, was I received a copy of "Big Machine", his forthcoming novel, not long ago and am absolutely loving it as my non-short story reading the past week.
