"The Body of This is a tough little bundle of shards that can as easily cut and make you bleed as it can reflect the one true light...Andrew McNabb is a brave storyteller."
--Bret Lott, author of Oprah's Book Club pick, Jewel
"Andrew McNabb's thought-jabbing vignettes can be as radically transforming as viniculture, turning the water of everyday experience into the wine of life."
--Joseph Pearce, author, The Quest for Shakespeare
"Every now and then the real thing [McNabb] comes along: a Catholic writer who writes well enough to satisfy literate readers who judge fiction by the canons of fiction, not theology. You recognize him not by his profession of faith...but by his well-crafted works of fiction infused with a sacramental intelligence."
--Deal Hudson, author of "Onward Christian Soldiers" and "An American Conversion"
"An elderly couple finally discovers the essence of each other after a lifetime together; a Sudanese immigrant uncovers the beauty in the simplicity of a new way home; a seminarian adrown in Guinness questions his calling; an eccentric muses on the existence of a prayer to a wound. These are but a few of the storylines in Andrew McNabb's ethereal debut story collection, The Body of This.
With award-winning stories previously published in such esteemed and diverse literary venues as The Missouri Review and Not Safe, But Good (Best Christian Short Stories, 2007)(Thomas Nelson,) The Body of This is an exploration of beginnings and endings, of architecture, the human body and what comes next. McNabb is the rare writer capable of combining the literary with the spiritual, and one of a handful of today's emerging writers to watch."
