Robert Wiersema reviews Stopping for Strangers

"Stopping for Strangers is a collection unified in quality, but eclectic in approach. There are echoes of other writers here (Promise for example will remind readers of the gritty minimalism of the late Raymond Carver, while The Last Great Works of Alvin Cale is reminiscent of Alice Munro), but Griffin is resolutely and clearly his own writer...Stopping for Strangers is the finest debut collection of short fiction I have read since Alexander MacLeod’s Light Lifting in 2010: My praise doesn’t get any higher than that.”
