"Chuck Kruger's collection of 15 stories deserves to be read by a wide audience as he is a writer of considerable talent.

Don''t just take my word for it. -In 2003 he won first prize at Listowel Writers Week for his story 'Hard Place', in 2002 he was awarded first place for 'Calling' in The Dubliner short story contest, and in both 2000 and 1998, he won the Cork Literary Review competitions. The good news is that all his award-winning stories are included in 'Between a Rock'.

It can be a mistake to draw comparison between authors, but Kruger''s work has an atmosphere reminiscent of Alistair MacLeod, not just because of the island setting, but because Kruger''s ability to invoke place and character in a few words is every bit as strong as the Canadian master''s.

Cape Clear is Kruger''s literary hunting ground. Everyone will have their own favourite in this collection, but the first story 'Hard Place', which hooks the reader from the very first paragraph, is as fine a short story as you will read anywhere." - Noel Welch, Evening Echo
