"Bob Thurber is lightning in a bottle. His writing reaches in and grabs your heart and squeezes it tight. Bob’s work is visual and emotional and beautiful in its poignancy. He’s a master of sparse, surgical prose. Wise well beyond his years one wonders at his human insight. I would read his grocery lists."
—Vincent Carrella, author of The Serpent Box
"Drink these stories like a fine wine, with their deep notes of sturdy oak and bitter overtones of sage, and a whimper of honeysuckle to finish. You'll crave more, I promise.”
"Thurber’s world is a terrifying world, an unclean world, populated by unclean characters, thinking unclean thoughts, committing unclean acts, narrated by an unclean voice. Only a poet could make you want to read that. I couldn’t put this down.”
