Smashwords book reviews by Bob Baldwin
- After the Fire: A Personal Essay
on Sep. 17, 2010
Affectionate and poignant tribute to a teacher. This memoir is well-written and wistfully captures the youthfulness and uncertain of the author as a young man. Also provides a unique insight into the nature of writing and literature.

Excellent tale of revenge!
- A Couple
on Sep. 24, 2010
Bittersweet story about a couple facing the end of their college days and the critical choices about what their lives will be. Much like other stories in this genre, like "Goodbye, Columbus," but well done with believable characters and sensuous writing.
- Only Love Can Break Your Heart
on March 06, 2011
These stories are very evocative of the period in which they are set. The spirit of the times, late 60's to early 70's is captured and recognizable to anyone who remembers it. At the same time, however, it is timeless in its themes about the passage from child to adult. The family relationships depicted in these stories change over time, as they always do. In the end this is story about growing up that can find resonance in any generation. Highly recommended.
