Sue Russell - Library Journal (quoting myself...do I need permission?)

Apple's new story collection, his third after an absence of 20 years from the genre, sets up variations on the stranger-in-a-strange-land theme. The stranger is often a Diaspora Jew, and the strange land could be Buenos Aires, Cleveland, or a carwash in Las Vegas. In the title story, the strange land is Marshall, TX, where dying 80-year-old Jerome Baumgarten, a retail giant and acquaintance of Wal-Mart magnate Sam Walton, "orders" himself from Brooklyn "a bunch of real Jews, I'll pay their way and make it worth their while." In this story and others, the characters are well drawn rather than caricatures out of Central Casting, and the transformation each encompasses is both surprising and well earned. In a pair of memorable stories, "Strawberry Shortcake" and "Adventures in Dementia," the strange land is the country of advanced Alzheimer's, where the humor is both unexpected and familiar to any adult child who has gained entry by force of circumstance into this chaotic territory. Readers will find much to admire, along with a respite from the more typical geography of the American short story. With Apple's stories, we know we're a long way from either the Carver trailer park or the Cheever suburb, and that's a welcome place to be. Recommended for public and university libraries.
