Praise for Arms

Arms is a strange, surreal, magical story about a girl whose arms are amputated by flying shingles when her home actually explodes because of the emotional volatility of her parents … extremely memorable.
—W.P. Kinsella, Books in Canada

Arms, is a verbal heartache, a bravura performance of language and performance of language and perverse imagination … The power of the book is unstoppable, largely because of the amazing imagery and manipulation of language … The metaphorical quality of the novel dances between the magical and the realistic in an exquisite pairing … Sonik’s voice is unusual and absolutely compelling … what a journey!
—Candace Fertile, Globe and Mail
