Published Reviews

"Funny and interesting throughout ... offers a touch of insight into the human condition ... Mairs is fully in command of his craft."

Charlie Patton, Florida Times-Union

"Bay at the Moon has a combination of sardonic humor on the surface and loneliness deep underneath that makes it a pleasure to experience."

Sharon Weightman, Florida Times-Union
