Recent press

  • “Sprawling and memorable, this is one well-written story.”
    — Publishers Weekly, Oct 19 2021
  • “[A Single Rose] is interspersed with aphoristic Japanese tales from various periods, as melancholy is gradually transmuted into joy.”
    — The New Yorker, Oct 11 2021
  • “[With The Dark Remains readers can] savor walking down the mean streets of 1970s Glasgow once again with the stoic Laidlaw. For that pleasure, we have Ian Rankin to thank and, one final time, the man himself, William McIlvanney.”
    — Washington Post, Sep 23 2021
  • “With elegant and careful prose, [Barbery] offers descriptions of Kyoto and Japanese culture that transcend the genre of a travelogue. This novel will appeal to readers who long for happy endings and escape.”
    — Library Journal, Sep 21 2021
  • “A Single Rose is a modern fairy tale, a re-imagining of the story of the thawing, awakening, and rescue of solitary Rose, an evocative, transplanted retelling of the tale of a sleeping beauty.”
    — New York Journal of Books, Sep 14 2021
  • “The most interesting thing [about Red Crosses] was to hear the voice of a young writer, from a generation who barely knew the Soviet times, and to see how he grapples with the subject... Nothing unlocks the human soul as profoundly as a novel can.”
    — Los Angeles Review of Books, Sep 9 2021
  • “Though A Single Rose is centered around vulnerable, tenacious Rose, its core is found in its Japanese setting. The novel balances lush, cultivated gardens and weighted symbolism with mischievous foxes, matcha, sliced eel, and sushi, all forming‘one happy chaos’and a fascinating maze of emotional release.”
    — Foreword Reviews, Sep 1 2021
  • “Writing from his perspective as a Trinidadian Canadian, Williams extrapolates universal insight into the experience of living under white supremacy.”
    — Quill & Quire, Aug 27 2021
