Editorial Reviews

Riveting and funny. William's skill with dialogue, with the tempests it alternately contains and releases, is consummate.

— The Globe and Mail

Williams's stories are so vivid I was certain at first that they must be autobiographical.

— Ottawa Citizen

Like a postcard from a friend with “Wish you were here” scrawled on the back. Save the airfare and read this book instead.

— Quill & Quire

Saving Rome has been billed as a book about the expatriate experience in Italy, but it’s about much more than that.

— The American

...unlike many other novels or short stories compiled by vigorously intelligent journalists - Megan is not boring.

— Here Weekly (Fredericton)

Tender-hearted and amusing first collection providing fresh angles on displacement, relationship ennui and disappointed expectations.

— NOW Toronto

Williams effectively conveys the voices of very different protagonists.

— McGill Alumni Magazine
