Future Tense Books, 2016

“Small, intricate, diamond-perfect stories that glow with mystery and joy. I love this book.”– Ben Loory, author of Stories for Nighttime and Some for the Day

“Bold, hilarious, beautifully strange, consistently surprising, and brilliantly unique — this collection asserts Alling as a daring new American voice.”– J. Ryan Stradal, New York Times bestselling author of Kitchens of the Great Midwest

“How did she do this? Meredith Alling made the world look different for a time. Sharper, funnier, more tender and alive. All by the power of these stories. And prose so daring and original it’s as if she invented a new language. Sing the Song is a brilliant debut by one of our best, new writers. Read it.”– Kathy Fish, author of Rift (co-authored with Robert Vaughan) and Together We Can Bury It

“Funny and freewheeling, with a good punch to the gut when necessary. These stories will getcha.” – Amelia Gray, author of Gutshot

“What I love? I love how much love is in SING THE SONG, how much wonder. Whether they take us to the peep show or keep us home to make spaghetti, these stories revel in the wonky disjunctive feeling of being alive. There is wizardry here, and the surprise of joy.” – Noy Holland, author of Bird
