‘McGimpsey displays erudition, clever insights and a knack for the
wickedly funny wisecrack.’ – The Washington Post
‘[McGimpsey] finds the humanity hiding in the hilarity. This guy is
as funny as David Sedaris, and more inventive.’ – The Ottawa Citizen
'It's poetry that should not work, but does, brilliantly. McGimpsey's
voice is so original and subversive that he is practically re-casting
the poetry mold, pushing the boundaries of literary acceptability,
and doing so without a hint of pretentiousness.' – Montreal Gazette
