Praise

Praise for Sunshine Sketches of a Little Town: “Leacock had a wonderful ear for dialogue and was superbly skilled in creating polished, self-contained scenes and in evoking character with a few sure strokes.” — Will Ferguson
Praise for Seth: “To read a book by Seth is to enter an oddly cozy, perfectly designed world where humor, nostalgia, and a gentle sadness pervade like the last autumnal rays of sunlight on a quiet afternoon.” – San Francisco Weekly
