Reviews

Apps sets words into sentences as if they were jewels; he's a beautiful writer whose warm reflections are shadowed with anxiety for the future. (Dave Luhrssen, Shepherd Express, February 3, 2017)

This book is like a handshake from a friend ... [it is] the literary version of comfort food: put it in your hands, and you'll feel as though you're wrapped in Grandma's hand-knitted afghan while sipping tomato soup on a grey day. Author Jerry Apps will do that to you; he's a consummate storyteller who can sadden you on one page, tickle your funny bone two pages later, and astound you with facts in between.
