Kirkus likes my orang-outang

The first notice I have seen of Best American Mystery Stories 2016 is in Kirkus Reviews.  They like it: "There isn’t enough Xanax in anyone’s medicine cabinet to calm the jitters these 20 skillful stories will unleash on a worried world."

And in commenting on their favorites in the book the anonymous reviewer says: "Robert Lopresti’s 'Street of the Dead House' shows that even for the supposedly lower species, the ultimate escape isn’t from imprisonment but from the mystery of one’s own mind."  Yeah, what he/she said.
