Hide Your Life Away takes place in a world of lousy jobs, food, and junk culture, and out of this unpromising material Carol Little has fashioned (as I see it) a work about commitment, and how it can offer a certain amount of salvation from that world. Read it. It is diverting, informative and artful. Thanks Carol. --Lorne Elliott, Writer / Comedian
What PEI needs after a hundred years of Anne. Carol Little is PEI's female Douglas Coupland --Shayli Vere, Artist / Entrepreneur
Little produces phenomenal work with excruciating attention to nuance, detail, character development and thematic tones in a way that makes the arduous nature of writing look painless and easy. --Suzanne Marsden, Writer / Designer

Her characters' dialogue style is pert, funny, real and wry, describing both the crazy ones and the achingly normal folks with broad colour.
The book's pace moves smartly along, but never feels rushed. The pages flew under my fingertips as I tasted the greasy food, stale cigarettes and the pain of embedded roofing nails first hand.
It is a refreshing work that is especially appealing in a time when news-bites, tweets, two-cent-articles-per-click and headlined magazine sidebars no one reads are the alternative. It stands out and is immediately appealing: the characters are kids of our time, the book is short but punchy and tastes as good as it sounds.
