Reviews

"Malagash is a poignant snapshot of the wonder, joy, sorrow, and reckless daring of being alive. With it, Joey Comeau cements his place among Canada's most talented and original writers. I loved this cleverly tender and unforgettable heartbreak of a book and I know you will too. A Monster Calls for a plugged-in age." -- Courtney Summers, author of This Is Not a Test and All the Rage
"Comeau's style is sparse but powerful....Malagash is a darkly humored exploration of death, family, and grief, eloquent despite its short 183 pages, devastating despite its simplicity. Highly recommend." -- BumbleBookBee blog
"Known primarily for darkly comic novels and the webcomic A Softer World, Comeau effortlessly switches gears to expose the trauma, heartbreak, and humor in loss...an immensely touching tribute to a very human struggle with mortality." -- Publishers Weekly
"Comeau resists sentimentality, and, given his subject matter, that's no small feat..." -- Publishers Weekly
"Graceful images, scenes and dialogue blossom, meaning Malagash rings with authentic emotion...Comeau gives readers a spare novel that feels real when it counts." -- Toronto Star
