BEING THE FIRE REVIEWS:

“The beauty of Dorsey’s character studies is his ability to capture intimate details organically and make light of heavy situations in an empathetic manner. Being the Fire is just great, part travelogue, part exploration of memory, it is an author at the peak of his talent.”
— Rebecca Schumejda

“An amazing collection.”
Trailer Park Quarterly
