Response to Books

"No one writes about males and conflict avoidance better. You need a straight-backed chair and a bourbon to read it." --James Bernard Frost, author of A Very Minor Prophet, on the story collection Disorder

"DeWeese's stories are as thoughtfully crafted as the buildings they frequently describe. And like extracting meaning from the shape of a building, reading these stories is an exercise in examining the relation of form to function: the walls are sound, the roof keeps the rain off, but there's meaning beyond the purely functional." --Alison Hallett, The Portland Mercury

"Life, both mundane and off-kilter, is revealed in this fine novel about a man who may not be as lost as he thinks."
--Kirkus Reviews, on the novel You Don't Love This Man

"Oddly tense and ultimately, cleansingly sad, You Don't Love This Man wrings an amazing amount of pathos out of one (only seemingly) ordinary life."
--Tom Bissell, author of The Father of All Things

"The careful, unpretentious opening of You Don't Love This Man can't possibly belie the cataclysm of interpersonal drama it contains. . . . The story has left me in that strange place between emotional exhaustion and raw, refreshed excitement for life. This amazing novel is why novels exist."
--Patrick Somerville, author of The Universe in Miniature in Miniature

"DeWeese gives us a portrait of one man's alienation, self-doubt, passivity, and, ultimately, his redeeming passion. With admirable formal restraint and unyielding sympathy, DeWeese delivers a whole adult life in a day."
--Jon Raymond, author of Livability
