"Sharp And Satisfying Stories..."

I was pleased to read this astute and articulate review of BULL HEAD that was recently published in the great literary magazine, Prism.

"John Vigna does for Western Canada what William Faulkner does for the American South and Alice Munro does for small town Ontario. His characters inhabit a land of “gin-clear rivers” and ancient pines, a place both enchanted and foreboding, where human fortunes rise and fall along with the indifferent vacillations of the natural world. Most of the characters in the eight stories that comprise Bull Head live in an unnamed small town, presumably somewhere in the mountains of interior British Columbia. The world of Bull Head feels like a real place, but it also feels like a place beyond time and geography, more a way of life and a state of being than a place on the map."
