A review of Sad Peninsula in The Winnipeg Review

So I was happy to receive a Google Alert yesterday notifying me of a review of Sad Peninsula that appeared yesterday on the Winnipeg Review website. Reviewer David Burgess McGregor has mostly positive things to say about the novel and its balancing act between the two points of view - Michael's and Eun-young's. Here's an excerpt from his evaluation:

"Michael’s narrative is about finding a story – Eun-young’s is about sharing hers. Both the search and what is sought are alternately displayed, allowing the reader to find similarities and comparisons that enhance the meaning of each narrative strand. Ultimately, Sad Peninsula is an intelligent novel that embraces complexity as it weaves together divergent times and cultures in challenging and surprising ways."
