Advance Praise for Magpies:
“Lynne Barrett belongs in the top tier of short-story writers in America today. Her unforgettable characters, poker-face wit, and sly plots make for an intensely enjoyable experience.”
–Kelly Cherry, author of The Woman Who

“It is entirely impossible to predict what you’re going to get when you start a Lynne Barrett story: a taut tale of adultery and murder, a wry evocation of romance among the dot com bubble, a gossip columnist who spits toads. What you do know is that you’ll keep reading-for the vibrant prose, the keen insights, and the remarkable depth of feeling. Magpies is a stone cold triumph.”
–Steve Almond, author of Rock and Roll Will Save Your Life
