Reviews / Endorsements

“Flick’s collection keeps readers engaged with her crisp and lyrical writing. Her eye for detail is poetically rendered, and she turns the mundane into the beautiful.”—Megan Douglas, Barrelhouse Reviews

“Flick nails the ending every time.”—Kelly Lynn Thomas, Eleventh Stack

“As if dining on small plates of delicious food, doubters of brevity’s value will leave Whiskey, Etc. feeling pleasantly full.”—Fred Shaw, Pittsburgh City Paper

Whiskey, Etc. by Sherrie Flick is a sharp–edged, intelligent, brilliantly written collection of short shorts by a writer at the very top of her game. One finds glimpses of Joy Williams here, but this is unmistakably Flick’s world, inhabited as it is with dogs & songs & whiskey & lovers. Of grace & undoing. The remembered & the remembering. This book took my every last breath away.”—Kathy Fish, author of Together We Can Bury it

“Sherrie Flick's Whiskey, Etc. is finer than the best brand of whiskey. With its clean fridges, cooked eggs and fresh-brewed coffee, crickets, pistols, pies, this book will leave you singing like the birds inside it. Ms. Flick's clean crisp prose with it refreshing style provides a delectable mix of tastes full of satisfying richness; each of these stories is like a memorable meal. And though Whiskey, Etc. is deliciously intoxicating and addicting, it is also sobering, full of heart, and real.”—Kim Chinquee, author of Oh, Baby, Pretty, and Pistol
