Reviews

"Like a Reagan-era" Ice Storm", Emily Schultz's novel "Joyland "captures the confusion of adolescent sexuality in a tangle of pixillated icons via the video-game generation. Set in the summer of 1984, this book will have you thinking twice about the video-game generation and the power of pining and Pac-Man." " --Flare"
"This is recommended reading, nostalgic technicolour at its sharpest. "Joyland "maps a believable world that depicts the grit and glitz of teenaged life in the small-town 1980s." "--Matrix Magazine"
"Schultz's latest is a satire of office life, romance novels, and afterlife narratives. She has accomplished something quite remarkable here, deftly juggling all this social commentary and a rather blandly sympathetic protagonist with a sharp command of language." "--Publishers Weekly "on "Heaven Is Small"
"I loved" Joyland". Tammy Lane is the most convincing child protagonist I've encountered in years, a cross between Lynda Barry's Marlys, and Judy Blume's truth-seeking missile, Margaret." "--"R. M. Vaughn, "National Post"
