From Clifford Hickey:
Countless times I have read reviews claiming a book is a page-turner or that it kept a reviewer up all night. If you want to stay up all night or speed read, those books are for you. But they’re hardly what I care to read, or write, or what we at Hickey & McGee care to publish.
We chose produce books we can savor; not slow or ponderous tomes, but ones we get lost in, perhaps fall asleep and dream about; books that make us look forward to tomorrow because we will have a chance to lose ourselves in another world once again.
