"Malla’s language in this sweeping novel is perfectly suited to his quirky subject matter. He obviously loves words, and the surprising way he puts them together makes every sentence a thrill."
"People Park crystalizes Malla’s unique voice: strong, clear sentences, surprising images, breezy dialogue and plenty of humour amongst the heavier and grander themes... People Park is an ambitious and complex novel, impressively rendered and fantastic to read."
"People Park is a zany and entertaining yarn crowded with incidents and colourful characters as different from one another as the acts in a top-notch circus... Malla's first novel is more than a worthy followup to The Withdrawal Method; it's a merry microcosm."
-Winnipeg Free Press
"Built frankly atop an edifice previously constructed by a who’s who of prestigiously obscure masters – Robert Coover, Cesar Aires, Ferenc Karinthy, Mikhail Bulgakov – People Park is despite that a loose and friendly shaggy dog of a novel, often challenging but ever ingratiating."
-The Globe and Mail
