"With humor, empathy, and sharp prose, Roebuck probes the lives of characters who exist in seemingly disparate orbits but whose common humanity is rendered through the dark undercurrents of their experiences. Compulsively readable, PHANTOM SOUNDS is a gift from a remarkable writer."
—ANN MCGLINN, author of EL PENCO
"Brave, brash, tough, truthful, and often a bullet right to the heart, Lyle Roebuck's short stories have all the grace and wit of the best fiction and all the insight and pathos that comes from genuine living that doesn't go as planned. With PHANTOM SOUNDS, Roebuck is proving himself to be one of the most dynamic young writers around. Ignore these stories at your own risk."
—CHRISTOPHER BOLLEN, author of THE DESTROYERS
"These stories have a thousand eyes."
—ZACK KOPP, author of MARKET MAN
