"Finely crafted and pared down to their bare essentials ... These are stories that work on multiple levels, and continue to divulge their secrets after several rereadings."--Quill & Quire "Among the book's pleasures are bursts of descriptive panache."--Globe and Mail "All the Voices Cry has to be counted one of the most assured short story debuts in recent years."--goodreports.net "Alice Petersen writes as eloquently about the natural world as she does about the world of human emotion and desire. This is a wise and impressive collection of stories."--David Bezmozgis, author of The Free World "Alice Petersen's All the Voices Cry is masterful and potent--incredibly satisfying for a reader."--Kathleen Winter, author of Annabel "The story is balanced between this sense of nostalgia and acceptance, and sustained by the narrator's charming voice and her gift for physical description."--David Bezmozgis, on "After Summer" "These stories are lively, immediate ... the metaphorical eye and the ear for voice are strong here."--David Adams Richards Prize, Winner's Citation (2009) "All the Voices Cry announces itself early on as something of a gift...The authorial voice, far from being elusive, is sharply, poetically present." -- Landfall
