"Craig Bernier’s collection of short stories, 'Your Life Idyllic,' is a stunning debut, a work of startling power and vision. When I finished reading his book and reluctantly closed the cover, I found myself recalling the thoughts and feelings I had entertained when I first read some of the greats of short fiction: Ray Carver, Richard Ford, Jayne Anne Phillips and more recently, Thom Jones. I believe Bernier’s book belongs on the shelf next to these aforementioned wonderful and important writers."
