"Steve Lattimore is one of those rare writers who is as funny as he if
profound, as restrained as he is spontaneous. One of the most exciting collections
that has come along in a while."
"The stories in Circumnavigation are matter-of-fact, then lacerating, then humbly
visionary or pitiful, and suddenly unforgettable."
"I felt lucky reading this. There's a kind of dazed exactitude and
inevitablitiy to it, combined with a perfect pitch for the sentences Americans utter when
they're feeling belligerent or impatient. This is the Kafka of everyday life mode,
the American Kafka, utilitarian, shiny and soiled with commodities."
"A wonderful collections of stories by a gifted writer. Reading Steve Lattimore
reminds me why I started writing myself."
"His ear is perfect and his eye is unlinking and his touch is precision
"Powerful stories about the various ways in which broken families manage
to operate. . . Funny, moving--Lattimore delivers."
