Pressestimmen"Celebrating twenty years of debuts, 20... is worth celebrating itself."-Dennis Loy Johnson; "One of the finest collections of contemporary short fiction around."-Pittsburgh City Paper; "Rereading these twenty splendid stories was like having a reunion with dear old friends who have done very, very well in life. This is a powerful collection of vivid, varied, and important voices in American fiction."-Chuck Kinder; "[Wideman] notes in his introduction that these short stories have changed his mind about the short-story form; indeed, they may change readers' minds as the book unfolds.... Recommended... with the words from Katherine Vaz's 1997 story 'Fado': 'Hold it for as long as you can, and ask for its blessing.' "-Choice
