Breaking and Entering

Makuck’s stories—like those of Cheever, Updike, and Salinger—explore the dis-eases of characters suddenly confronted by the sources of their anxieties . . . This is a very fine collection. Makuck is clearly an author of great talent and accomplishment
Gordon Weaver
Readers enticed by Updike’s oeuvre will appreciate Makuck’s stories . . . . This is a strong collection of honest and well-written short stories
