“Every word feels perfect. The stories here aren’t just entertaining; they demonstrate just how exciting and resonant…short fiction can be.”—Houston Chronicle
“Taut and dark, saturated with moments of longing and regret…. Bausch, a short-story master, writes beautiful sentences, and though his tales center around…moments of reckoning and despair, they pulse with something glowing and true.”—The Boston Globe
“[Living in the Weather of the World] puts the reader in mind of Flannery O’Connor’s ability to open out a story into dangerous, unknown territory…. That Bausch can deliver…convincing humanity, no matter the initial angle of ascent, is a testament to his powers of technique and observation.”—The New York Times Book Review
“Surprising, diverting, and endearing…. Every one of these stories is a treasure….[Bausch] is king of the genre in America.”—The Buffalo News
“Sublime…. [A] masterly collection.”—Publishers Weekly (starred review)
