Baby's On Fire

From Press 53

"Liz Prato's characters blaze with humanity, sensuality, and hope. She rubs her people together until they spark in a book that throbs with heart -- and grips our own." -Dylan Landis, author of Rainey Royal

"Reading this book is like talking to a good friend with good music on in the background. 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, author of The Particular Sadness of Lemon Cake.

"Liz Prato pulls off the ultimate banacing act: the stories are at once beautifully written and tremendously compelling -- not to mention filled with charatcers so full of life that they feel as real as people we know. A knockout collection." --Molly Antopol, author of  The UnAmericans

"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
