“In a glib, caustic age, Tony Press observes humankind through compassionate eyes. Warm in tone and assured in craft, Crossing The Lines tells tales of human yearning with sensitivity and respect. O’Henry and Malamud would surely approve.”
~ Jon Sindell, The Roadkill Collection

Crossing the Lines by Tony Press

  • “In Crossing the Lines, Tony Press demonstrates a clear eye for the freight we carry. For what guides us, trips us up, informs us beyond what is readily seen. These stories explore nothing less than the shifting layers of our own humanity.”
    ~ Robert Scotellaro, Measuring the Distance and What We Know So Far


    “Gentle Reader, welcome to the tender-hearted stories of Tony Press. In Crossing the Lines hippies, poets, wanderers and thieves steal our hearts, not to break them, but to expand their beating chambers. Tony Press writes with care and precision about the quiet moments that swiftly and un-expectantly recalibrate our wavering lives. The strengths of these stories rest in their good humor and close attention to how we fall in love and how that love transports us into the dark and thorny depths of our own wilderness. Tony Press is the perfect guide for these unforgettable adventures.” 
    ~ Amber Dermont, The Starboard Sea and Damage Control
