Review:


"In The Shooting, James Boice offers a timely and scathing indictment of our current gun-happy culture, cross-cutting hearts and minds in his incomparable take-no-prisoners style. Another stunner from Boice." Elizabeth Crane, author of The History of Great Things

Finding James Boice has been a revelation for me. His hard-bitten prose flies off the page at you like the cracking of a machine gun...” Tony O’Neill, author of Sick City

James Boice’s sentences crack like hot electric bullwhips across the backs of America’s demons.” Christopher Ransom, author of The Birthing House

Boice’s prose grabs you and never lets go.” Orlando Sentinel

[James Boice] masterfully employs a style all his own.” Boston Magazine

There’s a jittery brilliance... [James Boice] has considerable stylistic flair.” Kirkus Reviews
