Justin Brouckaert reviews Quarry Light at Sundog Lit Blog

"Smith is a confident and patient storyteller. There are no broad strokes in her writing—her stories are truly built sentence by sentence, each one packed with insights and wonders that complicate her characters in lovely ways. Nothing is ever so simple as it appears, and Smith is a master of inhabiting nuance, showing everything we can learn from small looks and gestures. It seems, at times, that she takes some of the qualities that make her flash fiction successful—concision and compression and voice—and incorporates them in her much longer pieces. And they are successful, indeed."

"But the real innovation in Quarry Light is the poise with which Smith transfers the pathos and haunting imagery of flash fiction into the longer forms; Smith’s collection is not merely a poignant object lesson in the inscrutability of human relationships, but a visionary example of how the lyrical eye of the flash form can renew, with sentiment and gravity alike, short fiction’s traditional forms."
