PRAISE FOR WENDI KAUFMAN'S

HELEN on 86TH STREET and OTHER STORIES

“Crafted with a light hand and deftly imagined, these stories bloom like tiny effervescent explosions in the mind. Delectable, insightful, a pure joy to read.”

—Janet Fitch, New York Times best-selling author of Paint It Black and White Oleander

“These stories are by turns provocative, tender, sly, heartbreaking, and laugh-out-loud funny. Wendi Kaufman wields the twin knives of irony and insight with the expertise of a fencing master, and then salves the wounds with the deep compassion of a true healer.”

—Gary Krist, author of Empire of Sin and City of Scoundrels

“Wendi Kaufman’s stories explore the tricky, glorious connections between men and women, mothers and daughters, sisters, fathers and daughters. In them, people often leave each other. They break each other’s hearts. They realize how fleeting and fragile life is. And they triumph. Each story brings the reader a sense of hope in the end. A sense that, yeah, we can all keep going.”

—Ann Hood, author of The Obituary Writer and The Knitting Circle
