Memory Wall: Stories by Anthony Doerr.. is a compelling collection. Lean but rich storytelling will reverberate long after you put the book down. Lyric, but unforced, Doerr's settings range the globe, but he always brings the reader home.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

"Doerr writes about the big questions, the imponderables, the major metaphysical dreads, and he does it fearlessly.."

The New York Times

"Doerr has an incredible sense of language and a skill for crafting beautiful phrases and apt metaphors, but he doesn't always connect with his characters, a shortcoming most obvious in the first-person pieces.."

Publishers Weekly
