HELLGOING

One of the hallmarks of Lynn Coady’s work is her shrewd examination of the underexplored byways of human psychology. Coady is a writer who increasingly commands attention and respect.

THE ANTAGONIST

Only a writer as wonderfully gifted as Lynn Coady could elicit such extraordinary sympathy for a man as full of self-destructive rage as Rank, her main character. You won’t soon forget this haunting novel.

MEAN BOY

Coady's portrayal of the jealous tenuousness of friendship, the in-fighting and fierce competitions of the literary world is daring and brilliant... Mean Boy is a tour de force.

THE GLOBE AND MAIL

 

Coady not only understands the passions and impulses of small-town life; she feels the comedy too.

The Guardian/Observer

 

Coady entertains, dazzles, instructs. Her stories manage to do what stories do best: get at that bright kernel of things and vibrate in the imagination like light-shot gems.

The Toronto Star

 

Cape Breton humour at its blackest, most profane and politically incorrect best.
