Reviews

"It takes an artist to craft such beautifully readable nihilism; Wigford Rememberies is an excellent novel."

--Broken Pencil issue 73

"Kyp Harness' prose has a unique flow: word and action, thought and thing are all contiguous and combined in lovely braided sentences. There's some Joyce splashed around Wigford, a satisfying read. This is a fantastic book, please just read it."

---Tony Burgess, author of Idaho Winter

Advance praise for Wigford Rememberies: " "Kyp Harness scrapes at the backdrop of reality to reveal the tired, the broken, the lost and desolate, imbuing their agony with a fine and desperate dignity and allowing the reader to be swept along as well."

--Mike Blouin, award-winning author of Chase and Haven
"Nightsong" is a lyrical chapter, reminiscent of Dylan Thomas's Under Milk Wood, swooping down from the wider view of Wigford to the particular details of its inhabitants' dreams, secret hopes, and disappointments. These characters and their stories will linger with readers."
