Testimonials And Reviews
Prepare to be amazed (and to lose some sleep!) once you start reading this collection. Powers has given us a treasure chest filled with memorable characters, fascinating plots, and gripping details. This is the stuff of life—humorous, sad, frightening, and thoughtful. My new favorite writer!

The Party House is a rollicking good coming-of-age tale that evokes a certain place–the Texas Gulf–and a specific time–the 1970s. I had fun rambling down life's road and sitting elbow-to-elbow at the bar with a host of such colorful characters, drinking their way toward an elusive ending, an ending that is never ending at all, just a new cast to replace the old crew at The Party House. And the party never ends.

Powers maintains a steady flow that makes The Sagebrush Hotel Tontine is hard to set aside. Chapters flow neatly into each other, leading readers into wondering what happens next.
