Praise for The Fifteenth of June:
" . . . authors like Mordecai Richler and Douglas Coupland . . . known for their dark but humourous literary masterpieces, clearly guided Jones' hand during the production of his debut novel, The Fifteenth of June
." --Niagara This Week
"I think some of the ugly truths about human nature in [The Fifteenth of June] were powerful. Fantastic debut from a talented author." --Michael McDonald, author of Walking Away from Depression
"[The Fifteenth of June] is full of wit, and even though the story has some darkness to it, it has plenty of humor and lighthearted moments as well to balance it out." --Dana Gore, author of Choose Awareness
"[The Fifteenth of June is] a process, for both the protagonist and the reader, of self-discovery and acceptance . . . and through this process, both reader and protagonist are shown glimpses of hope, of different possibilities, of the potential for change, and begin to understand that the way events and situations shape us depends on how we choose to deal with them . . . " --Daphne Kapsali, author of 100 Days of Solitude
