Reviews

In Familiar Face, Michael DeForge's genius brain foreshadows a not-so-distant future where optimization is the ruling dictator. Underneath DeForge's hyper-coloured, fragmented style and signature deadpan Is a prescient mourning for what is lost after the onslaught of updates and upgrades. One of the most compelling works to date by my favourite Canadian writer.--Vivek Shraya, author of Death Threat and I'm Afraid of Men

At first glance, Familiar Face may seem to be set in a far-off dystopia, but the longer you remain in this strange world, the more it begins to feel uncannily familiar, an almost-too-accurate depiction of our world. Yet, for all its disquiet, this was a pleasure to read. Michael DeForge's elastic, friendly line is full of humour and wistful charm.--Ling Ma, author of Severance
