    Andrew F. Sullivan Interviewed at The Winnipeg Review

    Shawn Syms interviews ARP author Andrew F. Sullivan about his debut collection of short stories. “One of this year’s best Canadian fiction debuts, Andrew F. Sullivan’s All We Want Is Everything (Arbeiter Ring) trades in pain, punches, pills—and possibility. To an inattentive observer, Sullivan’s rough-hewn characters may seem merely pathological and sociopathic. But from child abductors to suicidal embezzlers, from barroom brawlers to front-porch tattooists, they fumble outward, seeking to feel something, grasping to find one another. These stories are short, sharp and frequently shocking.”

    The Globe and Mail Reviews Andrew F. Sullivan’s Debut Collection

    We’re super proud of one of our newest authors, Andrew F. Sullivan, whose debut collection of stories received a glowing review in The Globe and Mail. Zoe Whittall writes “All We Want Is Everything is a slim book but it is jammed with stories that drip with guts, bodily emissions, and heartache, told by narrators who long for a real connection. The writing is a clean right hook that lands with precision. …It’s a startling debut by one of my new favourite writers whose promise is clear and future looks bright. Write his name down because hopefully he’s going to be a big deal.” Read the full review here.
