“I think I can hear the shade of Grace Paley humming her contentment at Beth Bosworth's latest collection of stories, with their lovely riffs and a dazzling gallery of ordinary extraordinary characters. With a gift for the telling detail everywhere apparent, she can describe a dog's nails clicking on wooden steps, or its tongue ‘lapping at the source of life.’ Which is exactly what her own imagination is doing in every one of these wonderfully animated stories.”
—Eamon Grennan

"Beth Bosworth sets her stories in the labyrinth of family life, bravely exploring its dark turns and heart-stopping entanglements. The minds of her characters are self haunted with their memories, and what is imagined as the past is as crucially immediate as the present. A Burden of Earth is the debut of a gifted writer—someone to watch."
— E.L. Doctorow, praise for A Burden of Earth and Other Stories

“A collection of concise, unapologetic and inventive stories that pack a fast and tough punch . . . Beneath the narrator’s cerebral self-analysis, Bosworth crafts a context illustrating  the character’s more profound and indeterminate loneliness. This  ability is the genius of the collection.”
—Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

“A dizzingly beautiful treatise on what it means to love, live, and get lost in time. . . . Bosworth possesses the ability to take the world as we may know it and show it to us through new eyes. . . . [The stories] always have one thing in common: the struggle to understand and connect with each other. This theme is illustrated in lucid and beautiful language across the collection, and by the end one is left with the certain feeling of time well spent in Bosworth’s world.”
—The Hollins Critic

”Bosworth has talent to spare. . . . There are moments of unusual clarity, insight, and actual humor to reward the reader on nearly ever page of the collection. . . . Descriptive gymnastics [are] on display, many of which are subtle and quick and mysterious, well worth luxuriating over.”
—Rain Taxi
