Rave reviews have been appearing for acclaimed author Lisa Moore's new novel February:
"Moore offers us, elegantly, exultantly, the very consciousness of her characters. In this way, she does more than make us feel for them. She makes us feel what they feel, which is, I think, the point of literature and maybe even the point of being human." - The Globe and Mail
"Moore never errs on the side of sentimentality; all of Helen's anxieties are revealed in concrete, everyday realities. Loneliness is hard to write about without becoming maudlin or clichéd. But Moore seems to understand this very human facility, describing the unconscious ways we sometimes try to avoid feeling overwhelmed by it." - The Ottawa Citizen
"Moore's writing resembles poetry in its frequent use of sentence fragments and the way she builds a scene through the accumulation of images. She expertly captures her characters' physical surroundings in sharp-edged fragments of colour and sensation." - Winnipeg Free Press
