"Like the ferry itself, this book sails from Staten Island into the troubled waters of fiction's greatest themes—family, love, death—all with wry humor and a sharp eye for detail. A wonderful debut."

"Claire Jimenez writes with tremendous heart, tremendous wit. Each narrative collected in Staten Island Stories zings with sharp humor and heart-squeezing pathos."

"Staten Island Stories is a welcome working-class shout into the face of those who would have us believe that the story of any one American is more important than the story of any other. The view from Jimenez's Staten Island Ferry is one all of us should see."

"Compulsively readable, hilarious, and true, Claire Jimenez's Staten Island Stories is a wild and wise and vicious pleasure—this book is full of love."
