Advance Praise

D.E. Fredd writes in the tradition of John Cheever, exploring the territory of the human heart with a keen eye and a wickedly precise pen. His characters know their weaknesses and their strengths, and their voices are raw, moving, and absolutely real. His stories are finely crafted windows on the wa y we love and hurt one another, told with humor and delicate grace. — Laurie Seidler, Editor, VerbSap

Whether writing about a gangster or a prison camp guard, D.E. Fredd makes strong use of voice. Vividly-drawn characters inhabit his challenging and insightful stories, which plumb the depths — and the darkness — of human experience. — Alyce Wilson, Editor, Wild Violet

Dutch Treatment is available for $9 from Black Lawrence Press.
