Product description

Review

People Park is reminiscent of Gary Shteyngart or George Saunders ... vividly imagined ... (J. C. Sutcliffe Globe and Mail 2012-07-13)

The novel is a cacophony of comedy and heartbreak, magical realism and satiric wit, made melodically whole through Malla’s deft prose. (Yutaka Dirks Briarpatch Magazine 2012-10-01)

Written in breathless prose, it’s oddball fun, and Malla proves himself as a writer who never takes the easy way out. (Mike Doherty National Post 2012-06-02)

[People Park] unfolds a unique and fully realized fictional universe in which the author explores themes of displacement, isolation, and reunification with flashes of dark humour. (Shawn Syms Quill and Quire 2012-07-01)

... an imaginative feat ... (Michael Hingston Georgia Straight 2012-07-05)

... every sentence [is] a thrill ... [in People Park] we get a frightening picture of ourselves. (Eric Boodman Montreal Gazette 2012-07-06)

People Park is a zany and entertaining yarn ... more than a worthy followup to The Withdrawal Method; it's a merry microcosm. (Dave Williamson Winnipeg Free Press 2012-07-07)

People Park is an ambitious and complex novel, impressively rendered and fantastic to read. (Matthew J. Trafford National Post 2012-07-06)

When I got to the last page, I wanted to flip the thing over and start right back at the beginning. I can’t think of a better testament to the pleasure of reading a novel. (Suzannah Showler AV Club 2012-07-10)
