EVERYONE AT THIS PARTY BY TANJA BARTEL

Published in The Miramichi reader

“Often we place authors and poets on a pedestal, and Tanja Bartel does not let us do this with her. What makes the collection great is how grimy and true it is. More than grimy and true, though, it’s funny.”

IN THE BEGGARLY STYLE OF IMITATION BY JEAN MARC AH-SEN

Published in The Miramichi Reader

“This collection….asks its readers to see the good side of misanthropy and to appreciate cynicism, which was surprisingly refreshing to read.”

I am a big fan of this book! 

#820 CALGARY AND A WORLD AWRY

Published in The Ormsby Review

"In 'O Calgary: The World Awry,' Wayman uses the City of Calgary to represent universal urban problems. I grew up not far from Calgary, and I felt excited to find my home represented here. Wayman’s image of Calgary is not the sweet, simple, naive representation of the kind we want to read when our homes are represented in literature."
