"Comedy along heartache, those tales croon honky-tonk ballads after closing-time. They wade in loss yet continue scanning for a Coast shield rescue copter. Astute concerning the nuances of sliding social type, the tales are tricky, direct, grimly humorous .... The writing is grownup: it recognizes how a lot has been misplaced already. however the tone is still clean with candy (or bruising) sensation. each personality comes rigged with a crazed belief-as the name suggests-that success continues to be by some means certain this way-after an unforeseen hold up in one other time-zone .... The stories are set in trailer suburbia. yet their activities appear performed out around the Wal-Mart parking lot's in simple terms clover-covered median. Sexual aid are available, yet out close to the dumpsters of a closed strip-mall steak condominium .... The writer's steadying empathy and skill for doom, force the characters towards reckless chance-takings. This creates a young suspense as tough to shake because the tales' betraying religion in success itself." Allan Gurganus, quotation for Runner Up within the Grace Paley Prize Competition.
