Review:


"Flexing impressive literary chops, the beer vendor/creative-writing professor captures both the tough, defensive exterior and the vulnerable, often-broken heart of his city."
Timeout Chicago

"Chicago, a page at a time. Michael Czyzniejewski gets right to the point in telling the city's stories."
Chicago Tribune

"...Michael Czyzniejewski’s Chicago Stories, forty fictional monologues riffing on the common culture of the Windy City’s shared history, projected forward into a possible future. Not quite historical fiction―more like historical jazz."
Newcity Lit
"In Chicago Stories, Michael Czyzniejewski summons all of Chicago ― its ghosts, living and dead, its heroes and fools, sinners and saints, its people and places and all of its occasions ― and in these pages they have gathered, strange and unlikely bedfellows, to sing a new song for Chicago. It will twist your arm behind your back, this song. It will break your fingers."
― Billy Lombardo, author of The Man With Two Arms and The Logic of a Rose: Chicago Stories
