From the Back Cover:

'These stories scrape the nerve and pierce the heart. They also replenish the language. The are told sparely, hauntingly, with compassion and a remarkable exploratory courage.' -- Eliot Fremont-Smith, The New York Times

'. . . makes clear the rewards of an imagination which clings to the concrete world like a lover and makes of it, through near-perfect language, a renewed mystery.' --Jack Richardson, The New York Review of Books

'Gass has written a short story as dense as a novel, lyrical as a poem. . . . If he had not written before or since, In the Heart of the Heart of the Country would be enough -- all that readers and writers could ask of him. Being Gass he has done much more.' -- Frederick Busch, Modern Fiction Studies
