Durban relates this tale [Rowing to Darien] in a measured but warm and evocative way. Her use of language and sympathy for her characters, whether black or white, rich or poor, illuminates all of the volume's eleven stories.-- "Lively-Arts.com"
Pam Durban writes with such deep and abiding empathy that we never doubt her characters' voices, thoughts, or hearts, whether in the pre-Civil War South or more contemporary settings. Yet what makes these stories equally unforgettable is the beauty of her language. To have this wonderful new collection Soon in print is cause for celebration.--Ron Rash
Pam Durban's Soon will add great substance to the growing awareness of her being one of America's finest writers. In this new book of short stories, her talent is on full display and I was reminded of Lorrie Moore, Ann Patchett, and Ron Rash. I would call Durban first-rate but I believe that she is far, far better than that.--Pat Conroy
The stories in Soon all share an awareness of the fragility of life and the intricate web of past loves and memories held within. On surface the large situations are simple: death, divorce, a child's rebellion, and yet, the weaving process of all that has fed these lives is complex and beautifully represents the particles of everyday life. In elegant prose, Durban explores these moments of transition and loss with great wisdom and compassion.--Jill McCorkle
The stories in this collection deftly broach the universal themes of love, loss, and the redemptive power of storytelling.-- "Dew on the Kudzu"
