Thanks Quill and Quire




Quill and Quire, "Canada's Magazine of Book News and Reviews," picked 15 books from 2008, "to remember," and Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere is one of them.

The article says, "Some are critical favourites, some are bookstore blockbusters. Some dive into difficult subjects, some are about pure pleasure."

About Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, they say it's, "a sprawling portrait of a city that's rare for any novel, genre or literary."

It's great to be noticed, thanks Q&Q!

Congratulations, John. This is well deserved. I was at Declan Hughes' rant, too. Looks like you're becoming one of those who "transcends the genre." ;-)

Kasey said...

Congrats. That is very cool.

Declan Burke said...

It is very cool indeed ... Can I be the first to coin the phrase, 'transcending the Johnre'?

Nice one, squire.

John McFetridge said...
