"Chicago, a page at a time. Michael Czyzniejewski gets right to the point in telling the city's stories."
— Chicago Tribune
"This handsome book collects dozens of Czyzniejewski’s inspired vignettes in the imagined voices of historical Chicagoans. Flexing impressive literary chops, the beer vendor/creative-writing professor captures both the tough, defensive exterior and the vulnerable, often-broken heart of his city."
— Timeout Chicago
"...Michael Czyzniejewski’s “Chicago Stories,” forty fictional monologues riffing on the common culture of the Windy City’s shared history, projected forward into a possible future. Not quite historical fiction—more like historical jazz."
— Newcity Lit
