A daring reconfiguration of the fictional narrative.
-Vancouver Magazine (Vancouver Magazine)
Brilliant . . . a dazzling, dizzying multilayered blend of fact and fiction, of the plausible and the preposterous, of the real and the hyper-real. It is also screamingly funny.
-The Globe and Mail (The Globe & Mail)
Turner is probably the most original writer BC has produced in a generation.
-Gerogia Straight (Georgia Straight)
Turner constructs an intense, intelligent, and darkly humorous satire. . . . Too original to be nominated for awards.
-Quill & Quire (Quill & Quire)
Tightly packed . . . the book weaves its way in and out of various levels of reality. . . . There's a bright, playful mind at work here.
-Toronto Star (Toronto Star)
. . . conflicts of class, race, gender, and sexuality erupt in hilariously schematic and surreal ways. Professing to be less than it is, it's a surprisingly haunting work-a smutty Pale Fire that, through its dizzying strata of competing truths, may have more to say about our reality than it ever lets on.
-Village Voice (Village Voice)
