"S. P. Tenhoff possesses the enviable talent of blending complex narratives with effortless honesty. Intricate, thrilling, utterly absorbing fiction." --R. M. Cooper, Sequestrum

"The Involuntary Sojourner is a collection of the most empathic fiction. Tenhoff's stories span countries, societies, and stages of life, and in so doing, they give narrative and character to the slow, intricate entangling that we call living. Few authors could gather Japanese magicians, children of dystopic civilizations, callous daughters, and guilt-ridden American men into one short story collection, but Tenhoff's deftly woven work does so triumphantly. This collection is a tapestry of the human heart in all its complexity." --Lucie Shelly, Electric Literature

"The Involuntary Sojourner imagines the borders society has imposed upon itself and the struggles to overcome them: a regional boundary literally dividing a woman's house in two, a man longing for interaction with the father of the child he accidentally killed, a lonely dentist drawn to a new immigrant in spite of social taboo and mammoth language and cultural barriers, a self-important and respected showman in search of a successor astonished to find artistic camaraderie in an indigent disabled street performer. Tenhoff's spare, elegant prose and authentic immersions into unique communities (magicians, a family puppetry dynasty) catapult the reader into extraordinary worlds while maintaining in tender expression the universal desire for human connection." --Kia Corthron, author of The Castle Cross the Magnet Carter
