Reviews
"Man of Bone is gripping, and its treatment of torture is fully believable. A captivating narrative of a nightmare situation." - Cynthia Keppley Mahmood - 20161001
"Undesistingly fast-paced, tough, unsentimental, and compelling, Man of Bone introduces the vividly realized island nation of Santa Irene and a kidnapped, tortured Canadian diplomat who finds himself further islanded in his life-or-death predicament." - Steven Heighton - 20161001
"One of the best young writers in the country." - Alistair McLeod - 20120504
"Alan Cumyn's writing has shifted into a new gear -- overdrive. Man of Bone moves at the pace of a thriller, with a thriller's taste for blood. Cumyn paints a heart-wrenching portrait of western man, Canadian subspecies -- both compassionate and boneheaded -- pried out of his complacency to face the brutal oppression and inhumanity that is the cankerous root of third-world political terrorism." - Tim Wynne-Jones - 20161001
