Review

Praise for Paul Carlucci and A PLEA FOR CONSTANT MOTION

"Paul Carlucci's A Plea for Constant Motion is a visceral, vibrant, take-no-prisoners collection. Its characters keep talking in your head even after you put the stories down, coming back when you least expect it. Bright like nightmares, yet gauzy like half-remembered dreams -- a unique touch." -- Russell Wangersky, author of The Path of Most Resistance

"Paul Carlucci's collection thrums with violence. The damaged, deranged, and dangerous are flayed open on the page by vivid, razor-sharp prose. These stories, steeped in darkness, disturb and captivate in equal measure." -- Laura Trunkey, author of Double Dutch

"Paul Carlucci has a gift for the dark and the heartbreaking. In this myriad collection of stories, we meet people who have been confronted with all manner of quiet disasters. It's a testament to the careful brilliance of Carlucci's prose that this disaster exists hand-in-hand with redemption; these are tales of unlikely triumph, wistfully poignant and played out with a master hand." -- Amanda Leduc, author of The Miracles of Ordinary Men

"Whether Paul Carlucci's characters are dealing with class conflict, prejudice, or incomprehensible cruelty, the precision and dark, vivid humour of his stories deliver new angles on literary and societal conventions, demonstrating that the sidelines are often where the real emotional action is." -- Naben Ruthnum, Journey Prize-winning author

The manipulation of tone within and across stories in A Plea for Constant Motion is enhanced by an overall structure that is carefully and deliberately constructed . . . [there is] much to appreciate in this tough and challenging collection. Globe and Mail

It doesn't make for easy reading, but A Plea for Constant Motion has an air of urgency to it, a sense of relevance which is at once odd for a collection of short stories and disturbing in and of itself. Carlucci . . . writes beautifully of ugliness, immersing the reader in the minds and hearts of characters most of us would like to avoid, or, more critically, would prefer to believe didn't exist. It's a perfect collection for a world which confronts us with increasing violence and ugliness every day. Toronto Star
