"[Paul Lisicky] always manages to break your heart, for he has the diviner's gift for finding the wellsprings of quiet sorrows."
"...one of the select writers who continues to teach me about the complexities of the human heart."
--Robert Olen Butler
"Nobody writes about hilarious longing the way Paul Lisicky does. Some writers manage to be funny and sad in turn. Lisicky manages to be both at the same time."
"The appearance of a writer like Paul Lisicky--a writer who deeply respects the complexities of love and desire, who can find tragedy and transcendence almost everywhere he looks--is a rare event."
"Lisicky's prose shines, at times hilarious, at others entrenched in sorrow and longing."
--Bret Anthony Johnston
"If there's a place for poetry and prose to co-habitate, it's here in Lisicky's world."
