“In Stranger to the Truth, Ms. Hickman has taken a local tragedy and, with eloquence and empathy, given it universal application. The reader will find not only a gripping story, but also a moving exploration of the shadows that dwell within us all.”
— Howard Bahr, author of The Black Flower, The Year of Jubilo, and The Judas Field.

“In Remembering, … the editor [Lisa C. Hickman] presents one hundred pages of Williams’ skillful prose as ‘a celebration and recognition of a remarkable writer who dedicated more than fifty years of her life to a craft she considered “a life’s process that entailed a lonesomeness of spirit.…”’ With their frankness about challenges facing grandparents and retirees (from exhaustion and hip-replacement surgery to haunting memories and a loss of libido), these late stories should attract new readers to Joan Williams.” —Joan Wylie Hall, The Southern Register
