ABOUT 'THE SENTIMENTALISTS':
Yes, I finished it last night. I picked out two reviewers that I think nailed my own impressions.
Ian McGillis, National Post, writes:
"Fans of conventional pacing will be tested especially by The Sentimentalists’ first half, which often finds the narrator musing things like “It is only from a distance that abstractions are, after all, desirable, or even possible” and how “there comes that one instant, that impetus, whatever it will be, by which we are one day blown, finally, from our own furthest extremity.”

And, Zoe Whittall, Globe and Mail, writes:
"Like a lot of debut novels, The Sentimentalists can sometimes feel like a stumbling colt, with moments of astounding raw beauty and original wordplay."
