From the reviews:

"Each of these short bursts (most are barely a page long) bubbles with a droll, dry humor handily captured by Soban's dead-on, deadpan translation."

        Publishers Weekly, July 26, 2010 

"Readers who activeliy participate in Blatnik's imaginative process will be richly rewarded." 

        Library Journal, September 2010

"Blatnik has a knack for wringing insight and meaning out of such concision, and he occasionally places stories with similar themes next to each other to exploit their resonances."

        Kirkus Review, July 1, 2010 

"The pieces are well concieved and put together, and it makes for a quite compelling collection." 

        Complete Review, August 27, 2010 

"Andrej Blatnik accompishes more in these limited spaces than many authors accomplish in stories several times as long."

        Howard County Times, August 10, 2010 

"... Blatnik is a talented literary chameleon."

        cleveland.com, September 27, 2010

"Short short story, I've come to love that form."

        Carp(e) Libris Reviews, October 28, 2010

"...the collective whole possesses a cohesiveness of purpose too rarely found in collections."


"A distinctive contemporary stylist at the top of his game."

        3:AM Magazine

I think this must be the shortest short-stories I have ever read. And yet, he manages to tell more than many. I really, really reccomend that book!
