About the Author:

Matthew Vollmer is the author of INSCRIPTIONS FOR HEADSTONES (Outpost19), a collection of essays; two collections of short stories, FUTURE MISSIONARIES OF AMERICA (Salt Modern Fiction) and GATEWAY TO PARADISE (Persea); and with David Shields is the co-editor of FAKES: An Anthology of Pseudo Interviews, Faux-Lectures, Quasi-Letters, "Found" Texts, and Other Fraudulent Artifacts (Norton). In 2010, Vollmer was awarded a National Endowment for the Arts fellowship.

Review:

"This book is AMAZING--moving and witty and sweet and sometimes even shocking--a little bit of everything we pray for in our private moments." - Susan Larson, WWNO

"This book is AMAZING--moving and witty and sweet and sometimes even shocking--a little bit of everything we pray for in our private moments." - Susan Larson, WWNO

"Matthew Vollmer (who has a talent for pulling literature out of unexpected places) has edited an anthology of 'everyday evocations'... As it turns out, you can pray for almost anything. But you couldn t pray for a more inspiring book." - Brian Hurley, Fiction Advocate

"A Book of Uncommon Prayer is fear, reverence, and disbelief, oftentimes all three at once; it's an homage to the heavens' Transcendental Signifier; it's about meaning, finding it, losing it, then grappling with its void. But it's also more. Laden with long, beautiful sentences the kind we expect from Vollmer A Book of Uncommon Prayer is a looking glass through porous borders, a prayer for the universally mundane..." - Pat Siebel, Atticus Review

"This is not a secular anthology, but it is not a religious one; instead, A Book of Uncommon Prayer reaches for the core of the human experience in all its fickleness. Vollmer s collected prayers speak to the fundamental and the minute, as well as to the absurd, the ecstatic, and the mundane." - Savannah Johnston at Puerto del Sol "
