Praise for F. X. Toole
"Toole's fiction is sharp and jablike, and at its best comes at you with the rhythm of a good gym fighter working on the speed bag ... An impressive collection."
- New York Times Book Review
"Move over Frank and Malachy McCourt. A new gray-haired, street-wise Irish-American writer appears to be ready to burst upon the publishing world."
- New York Post
"The strongest, most virile, and most idiosyncratically American debut story collection since Raymond Carver's Cathedral"
"You needn't love boxing - or even care for it - to apreciate Toole's highly accomplished debut."
- Washington Post Book World
