“Tragic, darkly comic, wise and true” Scotsman

“The first-person delivery of Javascotia is fast-paced, purposely verbose, reminiscent of John Kennedy Toole’s A Confederacy of Dunces, and the absurd dialogues of Don DeLillo’s White Noise.'”

“This was a sharp, satisfying, occasionally hilarious and always memorable read .” —bookbag.co.uk

“So many novels are enjoyable to read but are somehow instantly forgettable. Javascotia, to my mind, stands out as being marvelously resonant, memorable both for its characters and insights as well as, quite simply, for being a novel to savour.” —Judy Moir

“Obler is funny, touching and thoughtful.” —Guardian
