    1. debut ss s, very nice, mostly about a boy growing up in 1970 s indiana suburbia has many magical elements, bizarro even, but completely believable in fact, perhaps it couldn t be any other way and yes, sasquatch DOES play on their bball team, to good effect, but blows it at the junior senior prom highly recommended for short story lovers of note too is this is from u of indiana u press and their imprint called break away books edited by michael martone plays on the idea that this place is indie, [...]


    2. This is a really lovely little book of stories B.J has assembled a small world of tender nostalgia and the heartbreaks of adolescence The voices in this collection ring with astounding warmth and honesty What a delightfully rich touching tribute to growing up in the Midwest I think The Clowns was my favorite of the bunch.


    3. I read an ARC of this book on a trip to NYC back in December Here s the blurb I was happy to write for it Each of the ten stories in B.J Hollars s Sightings offers a rare combination of humor, insight, and coming of age heartbreak Taken as a whole, the book left me awestruck, dazed, as if I d just had my own face to face with Sasquatch.



    4. Really cool collection There are a handful of absurdist stories a style I m not usually drawn to, nor do I seek out , but they are interesting and deftly handled Good stuff.
