“Quinn Dalton possesses that rare ability to understand every working neuron in Everyman and Everywoman. The flat-out perfectly drawn characters in Stories from the Afterlife will stick to me in much the same manner as Richard Ford’s and Raymond Carver’s. Please, please buy this collection if, indeed, you’ve ever contemplated ditching your job to work as a stripper; felt guilty for impregnating the nursemaid; wondered how you’d react in a beer cooler with a pistol in your face; or contemplated holy men in a hardware aisle. Want to know what can happen from a one-night stand? You’ll get this answer, plus. These stories are lyrical, complete, stunning, and unforgettable.”
