Reviews of Born With a Tooth

‘Characters victorious, but book far from uplifting.’ Cheryl Petten, Aboriginal Multi-media Society
“His characters are well put together—real, believable, human.”
Heather Birrell, Quill & Quire, March 2001
“However, as compelling fiction, the collection is uneven, moving in fits and starts.”
