    1. I really enjoyed this collection As many have said, Alice Adams really is a master of the short story This collection is really delicious, with each story interpreting the concept of return trips I m really enjoying diving in to her work and I look forward to reading

    2. I recently finished reading Alice Adams RETURN TRIPS My great aunt, an avid reader and art teacher who recently passed away, first lent me this marvellous collection of stories I was thinking about my aunt, as I reread the title story, Return Trips the narrator reminded me of her, in a way My full review can be read at the reading list

    3. I think Alice Adams might be one of Lorrie Moore s influences, or at least a kindred soul they both have a pleasing wit, a pleasing prose rhythm, and pleasing female characters who don t always fit in Adams is a wonderful, underrated author.

    4. Adams was the master of the short story I want to cry when I think about the opportunity I had to hear her speak at SMU, but I passed it up.
