Reviews / Endorsements

“Brazaitis' collection, which won Autumn House Press’s 2014 Fiction Contest, is filled with gems. They are the kinds of stories that do what the best fiction does—ask questions. The questions aren't necessarily answered by the stories, but the reader is left to grapple with them on his or her own. Who am I really meant to be? Where are my blind spots? How do I find the truth, and what will I do with it if I find it? Considering these questions, like reading Truth Poker, is a worthwhile pursuit for anyone.”—Clifford Garstang, Peace Corps Worldwide

“Accomplished, masterfully plotted, and engrossing. With Truth Poker, Mark Brazaitis is at the top of his game.”—Ann Pancake
