'Full Magpie Dodge' is about the shiny brightness of modern urban life, its pressures and joys. More-or-less artful dodgers populate its pages, along with office workers, crows, exhausted junkies and jubilant lovers. Intertwined with all their lives is the unforgotten rural past and the still turbulent North: in short, it's a book that takes Canadian life as it is: startlingly robust, enduring, and sometimes beautiful."There's no messing around with Lyle Neff. He's straight forward, down-to-earth and uncomplicated in a very complicated way that makes sense." - The Loop"There's enough humour, self-loathing, and joie de vivre here to satisfy Bukowski's fans, but Neff's the far better craftsman. If you thrill to what words can do when stacked right, drop 14 bucks on 'Full Magpie Dodge'. Five books down the road, this kid'll be big-league. Get in on the ground floor and grin." - Fast Forward Weekly
