Staff Reviews


It is rare to find stories combining pathos and humor effectively, but Prato does so consistently with subtlety and delicacy. I found myself laughing out loud at one paragraph and near tears in the next. From the siblings in the title story, to the washed up big-league prospect in "Minor League Lessons," to the neighbors in "A Proportional Response," these characters are real people portrayed with empathy. An outstanding debut collection by a local author (and friend!).
