Reviews

"Chappy's is a richly drawn, darkly comic world filled with the clashing cultures of a mostly immigrant staff, an incompetent boss whose ego Stevie adroitly manipulates, and frequent equipment problems . . . [Stevie is] a prickly, self-aware narrator . . . Even as intimacy and affection slip into Stevie's life, her gritty narration holds sentimentality at bay. Forget Canadian 'niceness'; Strube's angry, hard-boiled characters confront the same ugly problems found below the 48th parallel." -- Kirkus Reviews

"Cordelia Strube's 11th novel hurtles out of the gate and never lets up . . . All the grief in this novel would be far too much to bear except that Strube has an absolute gift for humour. Stevie is smart, funny, and sensitive . . . a remarkably engaging character." -- Quill & Quire starred review
