My review of Emberton, by Peter Norman ...

is now posted on The Winnipeg Review website I first learned of Norman through his poetry, seeing his verse around in various literary journals and catching him read once at the now (unfortunately) defunct Q Space here in Toronto. I did have some issues with Emberton, which I lay out in the review. But for those who are looking for off-the-wall comic that turns into straight-up horror by the end, this may be the book for you.

This is also my first time reviewing for The Winnipeg Review, an online journal that I read often, and one that has published a number of writers I admire, including Jeff Bursey, Nathan Dueck and Jonathan Ball. Anyway, I may end up doing more work for them in the future, and I'll keep y'all posted if I do.



  1. Hi, Mark. Nice review of what sounds like an offbeat novel that offered some difficulties. Good to see we're in the same issue. Thanks for the compliment, too.
