`Wisecracking, whip-smart, and utterly beguiling, "Love Stories in this Town" is one part Chekhov, one part Patsy Cline, all told with a confident, hip-cocking charm that's completely her own. I flat out loved these stories.' Justin Cronin
`Amanda Eyre Ward proves once again that she knows just where to strike: the heart, the mind, and the funny bone. Ward tackles the fears of our contemporary collective consciousness - terrorism, war in Iraq - with the same compassion, intelligence, and spot-on insight that she brings to the domestic front - infertility, familial troubles, failed love.' Michelle Richmond
`New mothers, young brides, jilted lovers, devoted wives. What roles do women choose, what paths do they take when falling in and out of love? [In] a collection of 12 lustrous short stories...each is a testament to the ambiguity young women face in their desire for love...they offer a mesmerizing, read-in-one-sitting foray into the complexities of contemporary love.' Carol Haggas
