"Liz Prato's characters blaze with humanity, sensuality, and hope. Her writing glitters and her stories push us to the edge: a house burns down, a teenager nearly flies, the mother of a young girl entrusts her to a surfer. 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 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, author of "God Bless America."
