Reviews of this Book

“What makes it even more compelling is this reader’s sense that the story might serve as a cautionary tale for a do-what-feels-good culture” – Carole Giangrande reviews “An Imperfect Man” by John Calabro

Praise for Calabro’s previous works:

“Echoes of Pirandello and Calvino punctuate The Cousin, best described as tragic surrealism.” — The Globe and Mail

“[The short story A Glass of Wine is] … a subtly subversive piece of fiction.” — Descant

“[Bellecour] is a small masterwork of erotic candour and psychological acuity.” — The Globe and Mail
