Wait Till You See Me Dance (2017)
Deb Olin Unferth
"Wait Till You See Me Dance delivers on the promise of surprise in its title: Thirty-nine tap-dance sharp, hilarious stories take up people with hearts askew and right them. Disgruntled mothers, daughters, adjunct professors, speak in a voice 'with a tarp of sad earnestness' so as to win over the reader every time."
