In Praise of Fire in the Field:
“I couldn't put it down."
--Kelly Blewett, Cincinnati Magazine
“An elegant, wry, wise, witty collection that deserves a place among the best work being produced today.”
--Patricia Averbach, author of the novel Resurrecting Rain
“At midnight I was still crying, laughing, and fond of Young's ability to take me with him.”
--Connie Shakalis, Columnist, The Bloomington Herald-Times
“Fire in The Field” is a superb debut collection of stories from a very, very talented mid-career man whose writing career began late but based upon his one novel and this collection of stories, John Young’s writing should go very far; he’s as authentic a writer as you’ll read, honest and honorable, his characters well depicted, our empathy invoked time and time again.
