“With writing reminiscent of Stein or Beckett, Lish reminds his readers that the actual past and the remembered past are different, and he fleshes out every possible perspective … These details — haunting, funny, ordinary, pitiable — are the real stuff of life.” (Boston Review)
“Reading [Lish’s] stories is like looking at the gears of a clock that’s missing a face.” (D. T. Max)
"Gordon Lish has loomed large in the background of the American short story for nearly half a century." (BC Edwards, BOMBlog)
