Recensioner i media

"This is a book that's genuine fun to read thanks in part to the comic vision that gives these stories a memorable charm. The humor in Friendly Fire springs more from keen observation than situation. It's a complex humor that seems absolutely natural to the predominantly youthful voices of these narrators; yet, beneath the quips, there's a wisdom that prevents the youthfulness from ever seeming callow and a sense of understated sentiment that's all the more affecting for its comic guise."--Stuart Dybek, author of Childhood and Other Neighbors and judge of the 1998 John Simmons Short Fiction Award "I was once lucky enough to publish a story Kathy Chetkovich had worked on for fourteen years, at least that's what she claimed. To me the story felt like a bolt of fire, searing, delicious, made for the moment, all-devouring. She is the kind of crafty writer who makes it seem so easy. I read her the way I eat an apple--grateful something so close to home can be so exquisite."--Howard Junker, editor, ZYZZYVA
