He can weave a tale and has the chops to keep it all in a literary vein . . . this is a good book with a crackerjack ending.” ? The Globe and Mail ?Bennett’s storytelling is effortless in its pace and time shifts, and his dialogue glints like a sharpened knife.” ? The Walrus BackLit bonus material includes an author interview, discussion questions, and recommended reading.
