Blissful and Other Stories
A cornucopia of marvelous and various Americana. Huff's fictions sometimes shock, never cheat, always instruct, and persist in the memory, as real as the best and worst days of our lives. --Sterling Watson, author of Sweet Dream Baby
Huff's characters occupy the edges, the rich ecotones between city and rural, wealthy and poor, native and wandering, needy and full. They are also buffeted by the fates, living and dying not by chance but as organized by some all-seeing, -knowing, -powerful hand with a sardonic sense of irony and humor. --Stephen Lewandowski, author of Under Foot
