“Valerie Vogrin’s first full-length story collection is populated with characters who are lost, characters who are wounded, characters rendered with precision and the unflinching eye of an expert storyteller at the top of her craft. . . . Like us, they are deeply human and, in that way, utterly recognizable. . . . Vogrin’s prose is clear and confident and often grimly humorous, but in the end she is an artist of the unstated, deftly seeding clues that blossom into stories rich in detail and imagination.”—Dorene O’Brien, award-winning author of What It Might Feel Like to Hope
