Reviews of Passing Through
"… a gripping story of a man forced to the margins of a city and a
country he once knew intimately but can now barely recognize … a
narrative by turns humorous, tender and harrowing - written in a prose
of great liveliness and power. A magnificent performance."
- Philip Marchand
"Readers will relate to Daniel Foster's sudden financial loss, his
attempts to heal his fractured family and his search for a meaningful
relationship. The writing is fast-paced and vivid. A must read."
- Kenneth Sherman
". . . Penhale takes his readers on a journey through the Arabian
desert, the neighbourhoods of Toronto and the main streets of small town
Ontario; a pilgrimage of rediscovery and adaptation that challenges us
to re-examine our surroundings, our idea of comfort, and ourselves."
- Sean C. Tarry, Canadian Bookseller
