Reviews / Endorsements

“Gerkensmeyer’s stories are not only about creating weirdness. She also makes keen social observations….Gerkensmeyer manages to offer social commentary without losing touch of her characters' humanity….Gerkensmeyer's intermingling of humor, surreality, satire, and genuine emotion gives these stories their unique and potent kick. There is truth here, masked in the bizarre.”—Jennifer Wisner Kelly, Colorado Review (Colorado State University)

“The smart, funky, well-turned stories in What You Are Now Enjoying keep the reader not just guessing and leaning forward but in a perpetual state of wonder. Sarah Gerkensmeyer is an original, a sneaky sorceress of a storyteller.”—Stewart O Nan
