Farce isn't the kindest or most compassionate of genres and Fire in the Firefly stays true to that rule. No one in it deserves Brownie badges (unless there's a new one for juggling lies). And that's the idea. Saints acting with kindness and generosity is beside the point.
A rich, dark and highly accomplished debut.
Ottawa Citizen, for The Dominion of Wyley McFadden
Marvelous and wickedly satirical.
Ottawa Citizen, for King John of Canada
A Richlerian skewering...hugely entertaining.

A brilliant storyteller, Scott Gardiner clearly knows his way around men and women and the bonds they make and break. By turns, funny and melancholy, but always thought-provoking, Fire in the Firefly will stay with you for a very long time.
