"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
