'Mooney writes about loners and losers; about people on the fringes and those left behind. His characters are lost and broken; hard men and tough women often trying but failing to do the right thing. The writing is precise and uncompromising, and always surprising. The thirty-five stories drag you out of your comfort zone and stay with you long after you have read them.'
- Gary Duncan, Pushcart Prize nominee and author of 'You're Not Supposed to Cry'.
