Editorial Reviews

"Isn't it just delightful to see an artist produce something you never could have thought possible? Especially when it is done with such artful ease that it looks perfectly natural."
-Books in Canada

"A clever hybrid of religious fairy tale and straight-up spiritual inquest, this visitation of the Blessed Virgin is above all a holy hoot."
-Elle

"...genuinely heartbreaking..."
-The Globe and Mail

"...a lively, whimsical yet thoughtful look at life and its continual vagaries, from one of the country's most original writers."
-London Free Press
