“Advancing through this novel is more akin to the elliptical paddling of a canoe’s oar, dipping in and out of the same ocean, the same stories acted by one generation and told by another.

But it is Crummey’s design, and it is one not dissimilar to the aforementioned works of the magical realism genre.” -At The Outlet, Stephen Spencer discusses Galore, Michael Crummey’s generation-spanning novel of Newfoundland.
