Reviews
"Lascivious, bizarre, entertaining... Glover has a wonderful facility for imagery, language, farce, and the grotesque." - Quill & Quire - 20121130
"[Elle is] a maginificent hail Mary of pure imagination... a ribald, raunchy wit with a talent for searing self-investigation... Glover's prose throughout, while being consistent in voice, is also a rich blend of elegance and punch, raw affect and slippery allusion." - Globe and Mail - 20121130
"Historical fiction at its most innovative, a seriously whimsical book full of arcane lore from the first days of the European settlement of the New World. A remarkable, wondrous experience." - Wayne Johnston - 20170209
