" Patricia Zelver's humor is like a kitten hiding behind the sofa waiting to dart out and take a couple of slaps and dash back in. Her stories make me do what I practically never do, laugh out loud (What's to laugh at most of the time?)."
The stories in A Man of Middle Age
are all distinctive, befitting a five-time winner of O. Henry Prize Story Awards.
"Patricia Zelver created Same Winkle, a man of middle age, with style and masterful economy in the title novella. It is a minor classic."
