baby's on fire

 

“Liz Prato’s characters blaze with humanity, sensuality, and hope. Her writing glitters and her stories push us to the edge: Prato rubs her people together until they spark, in a book that throbs with heart—and grips our own.”—Dylan Landis, author of Rainey Royal

 

“Liz Prato’s stories are funny and warm as can be, so even when they are painful and sad, they still genuinely welcome a reader.” –Aimee Bender, The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake

Praise for BABY'S ON FIRE

 

“Liz Prato’s stories are filled with the lost, the lonely, and the damned, and she makes all of them sing with a haunting grandeur. Baby's on Fire is a lamentation brimming with wit, candor, and the eternal possibility of mercy.”—Steve Almond, Against Football: A Manifesto

 

"Prato’s prose is widely appealing and many- layered; her language is breezy and deceptively casual, while her content is visceral . . . reminding us that hope is bigger than our relative smallness.” –Atticus Review

 

“Prato is a truth-teller of the raw, unvarnished sort, something we need more than ever today . . . Her ability to telegraph a lot of back story in a few sentences or a line or two of dialogue makes these stories crackle with intensity and import.” –Read Her Like An Open Book

 

“The stories are at once beautifully written and tremendously compelling—not to mention filled with characters so full of life that they feel as real as people we know. A knockout collection.”—Molly Antopol, The UnAmerican
