Thanks to The Globe and Mail and Marissa Stapley for the kind review and for including Republic of Dirt in this fine line-up of books. I think every man and child should also read these books. Just to be on the safe side.
Here is the quote I will enjoy quoting (when asked if I have any quotes I can share, obviously):
“…hilarity ensues, and Juby’s light, comic touch makes this read a genuine delight. But she isn’t just playing for laughs: There are also moments that are startlingly poignant, as each character is given a chance to shine – even Stan, the mule.”
