Review:

Rick Bass is the rarest of writers, someone whose stories I'll read again and again. The Watch is a terrific book. --Bob Shacochis"

[Conveys] excitement. . . . A sense that a potentially significant writer of short stories has emerged. . . . 'The Watch, ' an altogether remarkable story of 'poisoned loneliness, ' . . . has the look of an American classic. --Peter S. Prescott"

Rick Bass owns a durable and authentic voice. I read The Watch with intense pleasure, wondering at the skill of a young writer who can both frighten and amaze. This is a superb debut. --Jim Harrison"

There is enough energy in this book to shake a house.--Clyde Edgerton

One of the truly impressive short story writers of his generation.--George Plimpton
