What the Critics Say

“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)
