"My Life Among the Apes" gets a starred review in 'Quill & Quire'

"Cary Fagan...is a writer whose critically lauded books regularly attract the notice of prize juries. He deserves an audience to match those plaudits. With any luck, "
My Life Among the Apes," which earned a spot on the Scotiabank Giller Prize longlist--will deliver that broader readership. The volume's ten stories are, without exception, splendid yarns, told with the practised ease of a natural storyteller." *Vit Wagner, "Quill & Quire," November 2012.
