Praise for Quick: "T. M. McNally's stories are compact, complex, artful and truthful miracles of humanity and language-strong coffee for these narcoleptic times. " -Pam Houston, author ofWaltzing the Cat "Like good blues, these stories don't strain but seem to erupt from the heart, organic as blood. " -Ann Cummins, author ofRed Ant House "Quick is as bold as it is breakneck, part battle and part sermon, fiction meant for high ground and high heaven. " -Lee K. Abbott, author ofWet Places at Noon From the author ofUntil Your Heart StopsandAlmost Home,Quickis T. M. McNally's collection of powerful and starkly honest stories of American life. The stories inQuickare complex, sometimes harsh, yet always unafraid of the dark truths many of the characters are forced to confront. Dense and layered, these miniature and compact sagas endow their often damaged characters with uncommon brilliance. Themes of love, loss, addiction, and courage roam freely throughout, and the author sets an unforgettable and palpable tone that is exceedingly spare yet faceted with views of the richness beneath the surface of everyday life.
