    1. I really enjoyed this collection. As many have said, Alice Adams really is a master of the short story. This collection is really delicious, with each story interpreting the concept of "return trips." I'm really enjoying diving in to her work and I look forward to reading more!


    2. I recently finished reading Alice Adams' RETURN TRIPS. My great aunt, an avid reader and art teacher who recently passed away, first lent me this marvellous collection of stories. I was thinking about my aunt, as I reread the title story, "Return Trips" - the narrator reminded me of her, in a way. My full review can be read at the-reading-list


    3. I think Alice Adams might be one of Lorrie Moore's influences, or at least a kindred soul--they both have a pleasing wit, a pleasing prose rhythm, and pleasing female characters who don't always fit in. Adams is a wonderful, underrated author.


    4. Adams was the master of the short story. I want to cry when I think about the opportunity I had to hear her speak at SMU, but I passed it up.
