Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Baxter's well-written narratives are distinguished by...the odd revelation in an apparently ordinary life..." 01/15/1997

Boston Book Review
"Readers who know Baxter for his emotive but subtle portrayal of relationships will find 'Believers' delightful and surprising." - Katherine Guckenberger March 1997

Los Angeles Times Book Review
"[T]his collection of seven stories and a novella will remind us that [Baxter] is an exemplary writer because he works in persuasive solidities, in what is actual....'Believers' is also a source of simply gorgeous prose.....[E]very page that Baxter writes is such a source, as is his every story a lesson in observation, feeling and wit." - Frederick Busch 03/30/1997
