Perry Glasser nails the curious kind we are: a tribe drunk with hope. This volume of stories reveals, page after terrific page, how we crawl from sleep into the crosswise light of a new day’s dread.
—Lee K. Abbott, author of All Things, All at Once.
Perry Glasser's superb storytelling conjoins grace and peril, making Dangerous Places irresistible to any reader who craves an authentic American voice and a sensibility that understands danger as a life-summoning force.
—Bob Shacochis, National Book Award-winning author of Easy In The Islands and Swimming in the Volcano
Perry Glasser's Dangerous Places is a fascinating collection of fabulous, funny, wildly different stories, each cunningly invented and firmly controlled by a fiction writer who has the wisdom, skill, and ease of a master.
—Ron Hansen, author of Mariette in Ecstasy, Atticus, and Exiles
Perry Glasser returns! He understands the insistent magic of people’s ordinary dreams; and he writes with an insider’s wisdom about the true hardiness of hope. This is good fiction – and worth the wait.
–Ron Carlson, author of Five Skies and At the Jim Bridger
Perry Glasser’s characters claim our emotional attachment; they are ordinary people walking a razor’s edge of balance, one step from sudden disaster. These stories are Glasser’s best work yet.
—Philip Gerard, author of Secret Soldiers and Cape Fear Rising
I picked up his book and was completed and thoroughly knocked out. His stories, about people on the edge of hope, are raw, gritty, extraordinary and unlike anything I have ever read before. It's literally the best short story collection I've read.
--Caroline Leavitt, author of Pictures of You.
