Praise

“History revisioned, turned inside out … Bisson’s wild and wonderful imagination has taken some strange turns to  arrive at such a destination.”
–Madison Smartt Bell, Anisfield-Wolf Award winner and author of Devil’s Dream

“A talent for evoking the joyful, vertiginous experiences of a world at fundamental turning points.” —Publishers Weekly

“Few works have moved me as deeply, as thoroughly, as Terry Bisson’s Fire on the Mountain… With this single poignant story, Bisson molds a world as sweet as banana cream pies, and as briny as hot tears.”
–Mumia Abu-Jamal, death row prisoner and author of Live From Death Row, from the Introduction.
