MEDIA REVIEWS
"The men in Greg Mulcahy's trigger-ready stories are bewildered and enraged by a world that looks like some awful funhouse of consumption. This devastating, sometimes wickedly funny book is chillingly on-target about the distortion of self in a culture that insists on compliance." -- Dawn Raffel
"Carbine is powerful work that reaches for the weightiest of matters: mortality, dementia, pain, anger, god, anxiety, amnesia, suicide, the failures of spirit and body. These stories are also very funny, in the way that wisdom, plainly spoken, is funny. Compression here is often frightening and brilliant. The mind set down on the page is given to swerves and volatility, to short fragments and interrupted thoughts. . . . Rage energizes these stories without embittering them; the narrator common among them is a man in his middle years whose potential for violence, and love, vulnerability, and fury, is unshakeable." -- Noy Holland
"Blurbs are frauds. Speech synopsizing speech, can it but be false? The only thing is the thing itself--in this case, Greg Mulcahy. All of him, packing, strapped, armed--a menace to your community." -- Gordon Lish
