"Rolli’s eccentric, whimsical stories exhibit a style and a brand of comedy all his own. There is much to love about this collection for a general audience, but these stories will be most rewarding for Rolli’s fellow writers and artists." —Thomas Michael Duncan, pankmagazine.com
"The seventy-five stories in mononymous author Rolli’s new flash-fiction collection, I Am Currently Working on a Novel, waver between whimsical and bleak. The best ones are both." —Adam Thomlison, heavyfeatherreview.com
"Rolli’s imagination is admirable, and his ability to make so much happen in so few words is deeply impressive. Each one of the stories in I Am Currently Working On A Novel is finely-crafted, a miniature triumph." —Christophe Frost, neonmagazine.co.uk
"Rolli’s worlds are strange and yet magic, tragic as well as humorous. He wrenches out the pain and also the joy of life, creating stories that could all begin a novel." —LouAnne Foley, Billings Gazette
