"...Quennec's expert prose quietly glides through highs and lows, seamlessly alternating between modern-day British Columbia and the colorful summer of 1926 on a tropical Cuban quay."

"[the] novel offers an astute examination of the despair engendered by solitude and of the paradoxical consolations it delivers."

—Kirkus Reviews
