Fiorentino is wickedly funny.” The Globe and Mail
"A wall-to-wall shag carpet of variegated grimness and hapless hilarity; a mid-life crisis you can hold in your hand; a horny walking tour of sub-industrial, suburban Winnipeg." Guy Maddin, screenwriter and director
"This incredibly comedic, somewhat tragic literary work is unlike anything you'll read, ever. Fiorentino details the desperate life of an aspiring writer with wit, oddness, and complexity." Joe Meno, author, Tender as Hellfire
"Both a semi-autobiographical first novel from Winnipeg-born author Jon Paul Fiorentino and something more complex and metafictional. . . . A collage-like experience, Stripmalling is a hybrid book forged out of multiple angles and perspectives. It is also a funny and clever experiment in tale-telling. Quill & Quire
"Worth reading for its wry, sardonic humour and delightfully self-deprecating tone . . . Thoroughly enjoyable ." Montreal Review of Books
"Outrageous, intriguing and quietly powerful, Stripmalling offers readers the curious and ultimately rewarding experience of stepping outside their own stories." Scene Magazine
"Expands our concept of what makes something worth reading . . . [Jonny is] a metafictional anti-hero for the new millennium." Fiction Writers Review
