A collection of compassionate stories filled with humor, heartbreak, and grace.

"The stories in Wins and Losses observe steadily the details of ordinary American lives. They are surprising in the strength of their revelations. Easily recognizable figures change before our eyes, discarding appearances and exposing truths they may not be aware of. Only the most perceptive of authors can claim such insight. Are winners losers in purposeful disguise? Or is it the other way round? Here is a book I read through eagerly.”"—Fred Chappell, award-winning author of Dagon

"I enjoyed these stories very much and felt their implicit connection to one another. . . . There’s much to admire in the surety and maturity of this writer’s voice and prose. Never showy or overwrought in any way, the writing has the best kind of near-invisibility. There are also moments of lyrical surprise."—Suzanne Greenberg, author of Speed-Walk and Other Stories

"It was a pleasure to read Makuck’s collection of stories. The characters are believable; the stories are tight; the scenes have purpose; everything about the collection is clear and readable. . . . His world was well observed, and I enjoyed my stay within it."—Gary Fincke, author of Sorry I Worried You
