Reviews

Praise for Permission (Dalkey Archive Press, July 2013):

"S. D. Chrostowska achieves unexpected buoyancy in spite of the intensity of her material. Permission, certain to be among the most formally adventurous books published this year, will thrill readers of fearless stylists like Blanchot, Barthes, and Anne Carson. In its obsessive intricacy, it evokes even earlier forbears: those wonderfully melancholy European humanists, Thomas Browne and Robert Burton. 'Every Library is a haunted cemetery, ' writes F. Wren, the narrator of Permission. This fine and perplexing novel is itself something between a library and a cemetery, spinning around the hauntings of desire, the confusions of memory, the ambiguities of solitude and, above all, the mystery of writing." -- Teju Cole (endorsement)

"One of the most intellectually bracing, technically fascinating Canadian-authored novels of the year." -- Steven W. Beattie, Quill & Quire (named as one of his top five fiction titles of 2013)

"A complex, elusive, perplexing, and, at times, bold work that alternated between thrilling possibilities and frustrating gestures, but always a work that begged to be deeply pondered and reread." -- Terry Pitts, 3: AM
