Critics’ Reviews

“With its fantabulous writing and labyrinthine teasing, A Description of the Blazing World makes me cheery and jubilant, even and especially when its characters are so miserable. Not one, but two protagonists roam through this startling debut novel, searching—literally—for themselves. Readers will join in as both young men pace the streets of Toronto, trusting these choose-your-own-map adventures, even as their choices unravel and expire. Funny, stirring, tender, smart, and smartass, Michael Murphy’s fiction is ablaze with fiery insights.” — Nicole Markotiæ
