Tightrope Books loves Salty Ink loving Danila Botha. This is me conveying that my love is being paid forward to Salty Ink for their great and exacting review of Danila Botha’s Got No Secrets. Below is an excerpt:
“A quick read, Got No Secrets clearly shows that Botha has a real fire in her belly, and you feel the flames in this debut. I could say the stories lack subtlety, or I could say they roar. I can also say that there are moments of surprisingly original imagery in this book.”
I always associate fires in bellies with my favourite creature comforts and past-times, but Botha’s passion is fuel enough without cookies and whiskey. Salty Ink is also the first review to include Botha’s title reference to Brendan Benson’s song, which is included for yonder listening.

If you play kick the can in the Halifax area, be sure to check out Danila Botha’s reading event at the Spring Garden Rd. Memorial Public Library on Oct.5, 7PM.
Also, is <3 lame and dated?
