    1. Nearly all of these stories are about men who are bewildered by the complexity of sexual relationships and the weirdness of gender identity in an unstable world men whose careers are falling apart, cowboys and astronauts who aren t sure what to do with themselves, boys whose fantasies come true in ways that only reveal how unprepared they are for intimate relationships Everyone is sexually abnormal in ways that make them vulnerable Everyone is wounded and sad in ways that make human connection n [...]

    2. I get enough of trivial, middle class America I deal with it.Sad to see it taking over so many of our literary channels Tin House,Florida Review, Massachusetts Review, Alaskan Quarterly, West Branch, Third Coast, and Beloit Fiction Journal all see these stories as worthy of print Frivolous topics, frivolous writing If someone likes it, okay To see it in some of our highest literary journals shows how pervasive the emptiness has become.

    4. Andy Mozina s stories are a wild ride The psychology of the book is brilliant and strange This won the Great Lakes College Book Award It s got some sex scenes that might make the squeamish squirm.

    5. What a fascinating, weird collection of short stories My favorite was the title story, The Women Were Leaving the Men, although I ve also always had a fondness for Cowboy Pile in terms of just plain weirdness.

    6. This collection was really fantastic They are memorable and creepy with images that stick The title story might possibly be my favorite, though I also especially liked the stories about the Catholic priest, and the doomed couple who drive across the country together.
