Reviews

"With a cover design modelled after the Purity Hard Bread label, “Racket” promises to be a satisfying package. There are unifying themes — love, family — but these are handled with rich diversity.”

The Telegram

"Matthew Lewis, who kicks off [Racket], is a stylist: he wields words in a way you’ve never read, and it marks him not as an exciting new voice, but one of the most exciting writers in town, period.”

The Overcast

“Racket of riotous and remarkable voices.” “Be warned, reader, these stories aren’t a fun jaunt into short fiction. They will challenge and tease you, and the characters will stick with you long past the last page.”

- Kim Hart Macneill, Atlantic Books Today
