Reviews / Endorsements

“There are no weak links in the collection; the stories start strong and end strong.’ http://www.necessaryfiction.com/reviews/BullandOtherStoriesbyKathyAnderson”—Rachel Mack, Necessary Fiction

“These stories pack an emotional punch and leave the reader feeling both pleasure and an immense feeling of loss. The collection asks the reader to move on, but the emotional weight stays with you long after you finish these stories.”—Katherine O'Neill, Mid-American Review

“Disorienting and illuminating, playful and often penetrating, the stories of Kathy Anderson astonish. She has already established herself as a powerful new voice on the national literary scene. The stories contained in Bull are marvelous pleasures, whether taken one at a time or gobbled ravenously.”—David Lynn, editor of The Kenyon Review
