Booklist: "Impressive Debut Collection"

Recently, Booklist reviewed BULL HEAD and had some great things to say about it: "Muscular, lyrical prose ... The characters, mostly men toughened byhardscrabble living, are drawn with understanding, insight, and brutal honesty....

"This impressive debut collection will appeal to readers of literary fiction like James Dickey's Deliverance, Larry Brown's Joe, and Annie Proulx's Wyoming stories."
