Editorial Reviews

NATIONAL BESTSELLER “Funny, colourfully drawn, briskly plotted and packed with enough detailed food porn to set serious foodies salivating, Seconds is a slight afternoon read, tackling Millennial anxiety and all that (often overstated) quarter-life crisis stuff in its own light-touch way.” — The Globe and Mail   “Fans of Scott Pilgrim know that O’Malley writes and draws quirky humour like no one else.” — Ottawa Citizen   “In  Seconds …O’Malley addresses bigger, and sometimes darker, themes like regret, ambition and relationships.
