Summary note
"Uncommonly dense, complex, and well-made, these stories are vaultingly ambitious, featuring a wide range of character and milieu. McNally's recurring interests are tricky relationships with fathers, with God; infidelity; an obsession with history (especially World War II); generational legacy/burden/shadow. Eliot said, But there's no vocabulary/For the love within a family./This love is silent.' The Gateway, in what seems to me a minor miracle, finds the words."--David Shields.
