Sudden Fiction International is even better than its predecessor. It's a fine teaching tool, a good gift, it's Around-the-World-in-Sixty-Stories, with many surprises, new friends, old friends, almost every stop a brief wonder in itself.” —Alan Cheuse


"I relished the concept, tasted the fare, and enjoyed a multicultural feast. My thanks for giving us so many wonderful voices in an accessible and delightful presentation. They're perfect bedtime reading." — Amy Tan

"In this cosmopolitan range of sensibilities, known authors such as Atwood, Colette, Boll, Borges, Dinesen, Lessing, and Calvino are joined by those we should know and will want to know better." — DeWitt Henry

"This book pulses with the flare of fiction breaking out—a book of light, of lightning." — Frederick Busch

"A vital service on behalf of the short, the sweet, and sure, and the—uh—sudden. Bring on another volume!" — Lee K. Abbott

"Charles Baxter's liberating introduction alone is worth the price of admission. These tales can make you laugh, cry, and even feel exalted in the space of ten minutes." — Rick DeMarinis
