Notable Reviews

Print/Online
The Broken Face is a lean, severe book, haunted by death and memory, creating a distinctive body of cultural references and private images that resonate among themselves, a kind of echoing chorus that attends the often tragic stories he tells. This is fine, fierce stuff that will reward the patient and attentive reader.” ~ Tom Sandborn, Vancouver Sun
