— Tobin Harshaw, New York Times
"It used to be that all men would be tyrants if they could. Nowadays, or so it would seem from Mark Greenside's collection of short fiction, men are struggling just to get a word in edgewise, and maybe catch a ball game once in a while."

— Phil Haslanger, The Capital Times (Madison, Wisconsin)
"Greenside's style varies in the dozen stories in this book, but the fascination of his characters is a constant. He raises the issues of family life in the fast-paced '90s, issues he enters from the vantage point of a man seeking to make sense of the world around him, but never in a way that belittles the struggles of those who inhabit his stories."

— Mark Hornburg, Long Story, Short, From The North Carolina Review of Books
"Mark Greenside revitalizes the short story by doing what the form does best—getting to the point. Like a great actor, Greenside can encapsulate a lifetime of emotion in one gesture, one phrase ... Greenside's collection could not be more honest, wiser, sadder—or better."

— Sarah Horowitz, The Jewish Bulletin
"Anthology Resounds With 'Jewish Questions,' Rhythms ... Greenside uses different voices and perspectives throughout the book, but the characters are all connected by a sense of displacement."
