Maynards debut collection bursts with idiosyncratic characterspacks a strong emotional punchis strangely entertaining.Publishers WeeklyIn Grind, Maynard reveals a world the Nevada tourism board would rather you didnt seeA debut collection of stories that perfectly captures the seediness, desperation and sense of loss permeating the hot desert world of Reno.Shelf AwarenessMark Maynards Reno is so sleazily appealing, so filled with convict cowboys, wild horses, racing pilots, truckers, snow bums, eco-terrorists, tattoo conventions, pawnshops and jackpots that you emerge from reading Grind dazed by this authors empathy for neglected quarters of humanity. You feel gritty all overand more alive.Carolyn Cooke, author of Daughters of the RevolutionThe characters in these stories are as beautiful and broken as the desert itself. Mark Maynard explores the stony truths of lost lives with an unflinching eye for detail, an insider's sense of the place and its people, and an honest compassion. The heartbreaks here are real, as are the moments of uncommon grace and hard-won redemption.Kim Barnes, author of In the Kingdom of MenMark Maynard's Grind is chock full of men and women who are desperate with want and full of spirit. Pawnbrokers. Truckers. Casino shills. Prison inmates. They're all here, and they're all gloriously alive. This is prime American fictiontough, generous, and open-eyed.Alyson Hagy, author of BoletoGrind is exactly what I like in a locally based book. Plenty of those characters who make a visit to the environs of Reno both an exciting potential and an illicit affairThis is a Northern Nevada book.D. Brian Burghart, Reno News & Review
