The Sun Review

This past weekend, many newspapers in the Sun chain (Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Winnipeg, Toronto and Ottawa) ran Joan Barfoot's review of Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere, which said some nice things about the book, calling it, "an absorbingly complex tale that combines the concerns of troubled cops with accounts from an underworld of bikers, the Mafia, sex-trade workers and ethnic-based gangs."

And finishing with,

"As Everybody Knows This is Nowhere beautifully shows, change depends, timelessly, on the inclinations, depravities, ambitions and hopes of individual humans out to do their best, or their worst, in the world."

Some of the papers also ran this really cool illutration by Tim Peckham.
