Bruce Holland Rogers says of "Tales from Ma's Watering Hole:
"First off, some disclosure: Kaye Linden is a graduate of the Master of Fine Arts program of the Northwest Institute of Literary Arts. I teach fiction writing at NILA, and Kaye was my student. I'm not reviewing this book as a stranger, but instead as someone who saw this collection of stories develop story-by-story and draft-by-draft.

Take my review with a grain of salt if you wish.

Kaye Linden's stories are richly imagined, crisply written, and worth your time and money. In the title character, Ma, Kaye has created a character who belongs to the urban world as much as the outback, and who reflects not so much aboriginal culture as original culture, the culture each of us invents for our own purposes from the material of the world we happen to have been born into. Come on in for a drink, a story, and a character who makes her own rules and invents her own forms of magic.

I love this book."
