"This collection stands as a lovely and bittersweet tribute to a small corner of America."—The Dallas Morning News
In his fourth collection, Anthony Bukoski brings to life once again the working-class town of Superior, Wisconsin, telling thirteen well-crafted and linked tales of its immigrant inhabitants. These characters, like the Jewish railroad track inspector in the exquisite title story, occupy a definite place in the community, and the only predicament several of them share is that they are impossibly in love.
Anthony Bukoski has published five short story collections, including Twelve Below Zero: New and Expanded Edition (Holy Cow! Press, 2008). He lives near Superior, Wisconsin.
