“…Stacey May Fowles’ first novel…definitely proves she’s a writer filled with talent and insight…The writing is sharp and evocative and shows a deep level of sympathy for the characters and keen psychological understanding…the strength of the writing makes Be Good a very enjoyable read.”
-Broken Pencil Magazine, Issue 39

“…probably the most finely realized small press novel to come out of Canada in the last year…Thank you, Stacey May Fowles.”

Be Good reviewed in The Globe and Mail

By Tightrope Books | February 2nd, 2008 | Print This Post | Email This Post | Leave a Comment

The Globe and Mail: “Toronto writer Stacey May Fowles is cruising a scarred landscape between the poles of gay and straight. Refreshingly, she never labours over which pole Hannah or Morgan might favour. Be Good is about twentysomethings stranded among our multiple definitions of what love is, between aimless wants and serial not-havings.”
