Review Roundup

Booklist said some very cool things about TELL EVERYONE I SAID HI. It's not available online, but you can read what they had to say over at Amazon.

An excerpt: "It is no mistake that this collection by the latest recipient of the John Simmons Short Fiction Award is bracketed by stories about cars. Is there any other, more poignant metaphor for the Midwest than the immense promise and eventual collapse of the auto industry (except the Chicago Cubs, who also often appear)? That sentiment echoes throughout Simpson’s stories about the heartland..."

Luke Sherwood also wrote a pretty great review of TELL EVERYONE I SAID HI over at his blog, Basso Profundo. Read his review here.

An excerpt: "This is a remarkable, distinctive collection..."

Greg Schreur wrote about my "Stories of Separation" at Englewood Review of Books. I'm grateful, not just for this smart review, but for all of the people who have taken the time not only to read my words but also to take the time to write out their thoughts about it.

An excerpt: "...even for readers who don’t normally read short story collections, Chad Simpson’s Tell Everyone I Said Hi is a worthy read."
