“Something is always at stake in these tales, and the reader cannot help but understand that he or she is involved in the outcome. And while the language is precise and often beautiful, it is never glib or trendy. The words count. They have weight and heft. Like all serious writers, Ms. Blanchard takes risks.

And by doing so, she tests the humanity of her characters and thus the humanity of her readers.” —Rick DeMarinis more... about The Stuntman's Daughter
