Jacob McArthur Mooney, Open Book Toronto’s September Writer-In-Residence, has posted a review of The Velocity of Escape as part of his residency. Jake writes:
The Velocity of Escape works because Johnstone is able to display a personal style without sacrificing diversity of either content of voice. This isn’t a “thematic” collection, per se, but it has enough architecture to stand together as a single work. Jim Johnstone will likely write better books than this, but that’s okay, as Escape offers enough to warrant the read before such future collections appear. It’s a success as both a summation and, to a lesser degree, as an invitation.
