MEDIA REVIEWS
Peter Makuck's third short story collection, Allegiance and Betrayal, includes some of his most impressive writing to date. . . . A poet and a short story writer, Connecticut native Makuck has lived most of his adult life in North Carolina, and his oeuvre bears the imprint of the Eastern North Carolina coast and landscape as well as small-town New England. . . . [His] characters are active: they fix cars, tinker with plumbing, dive shipwrecks and deep-sea fish. . . .The idea that the process of living-even the difficulties along the way-is a blessing could describe Makuck's characters throughout the collection as they navigate the most transitional parts of life.--North Carolina Literary Review
Allegiance and Betrayal: Stories is a conglomeration of family portraits with settings ranging wildly--'cars, on top of a water tower, in a bar, on a fishing boat, at a family farm, and at a swimming pool.' Makuck explores the core issues of family and friends, allegiances made and betrayals confessed, and conflicts both hilarious and horrible, all through stories that Henry Hart says are "destined to beguile.--The Sewanee Review
