Reviews

“While Tysdal’s themes look measured and sedate, the guts of the stories writhe and churn with double-toothed sharks and other fearsome creatures of the deep.”


– Toronto Star

“Darkly satirical in the best possible way […] I loved the brilliant tension, the shocking incisiveness and the way each story holds a mirror to the sociology of now.”
– Goodreads

“Award-winning poet Daniel Scott Tysdal’s first fiction collection casts an unflinching eye at the darker stuff of life: suicide cults, internet trolls, violence, and more. While weaving intricate plots, Tysdal renders his often deeply flawed characters with empathy.”
