Reviews

This collection of insightful, observant human dramas reveals both the humour and brutality of modern day life. It is also perfectly typeset to be read easily and is overall a handsome volume. I couldn’t put it down. - Expozine Alternative Press Award jury citation

“Andrew Hood illuminates the concerns of his generation with fearless clarity. ” —   Winnipeg Review

“Hood is joining the ranks of such satirists as Jonathan Swift and Alexander Pope, whose view of human culture and behaviour always acknowledged the underside of waste and excrement. ” —   National Post

“Hood’s prose is workmanlike but effective; there are no pyrotechnics here, just good stories, well told. ” —   Quill & Quire
