Editorial Reviews

'Some writers are famous for writing love poetry-Pablo Neruda, for instance. Others, like Scott Adams, have managed to pin to the page the preposterousness of corporate America. Rohinton Mistry is known for his poignant portraits of Mumbai. Sir Arthur Conan Doyle changed the face of detective novels by creating Sherlock Holmes. But no one can describe an unfamiliar bathroom quite like Kirsten Koza. - Geeta Nadkarni, CBC Radio Canada International'Kirsten Koza is like Judy Blume on acid.' - Sandra Polifroni, CHRY Radio Toronto'Koza, who has a degree in theatre, knows how to tell a story.' - Uptown Magazine "
