Reviews

  1. “Pereira’s stories are well-crafted and satisfying . . . . She writes with generosity and understanding about family relationships and her ear for dialogue and bursts of funny, unexpected observation are delightful.”
    -Roger Burford Mason, Books in Canada

  2. “One of Pereira’s greatest strengths is her obvious affection for her characters . . . all are observed with love, with the kind of attention that is a form of love. Pereira cares enough about them to try to get them right, and whole, and she succeeds.”
    -Gary Draper, Books in Canada

  3. “Pereira’s prose moves back and forth from the bodies and clothing of her characters to their inner lives, often ironically at odds with each other . . . Pereira manages to communicate themes of love and loss, aging and hope, very well indeed.”
    -Chris Knight, Literature and Language

  4. “Pereira was born and educated in B.C. but has worked in Brazil and lived in Ireland . . . influenced by years abroad, a distinct voice has emerged that is typically Canadian but has a texture and flavour all its own.”
    -The Saskatoon Star Phoenix

  5. “Pereira’s protagonists — women, young and old — boast unfettered, iconoclastic spirits . . . she quite poignantly portrays the verve and sensuality of aging women who retain their desire for passionate lives.”
    -Donna Bailey Nurse, The Globe and Mail

  6. “I have enjoyed Helen Pereira’s work since the publication of her magical novella, Magpie in the Tower in 1990. Three evocative story collections followed. Southern Exposure contains new work set in Brazil, Cuba and Costa Rica. The quality of this fiction will attract many new readers as well as retain admirers of previous collections.”
    -Helen Fogwill Porter, Author of January, February, June and July and Finishing School
