Editorial Review

"Moving and trenchant stories. Huggan is an elegant wordsmith but more than that, she has a way of seeing the truth of experience... Buy this book. Read it. Savour it. Read it again and again."
The Calgary Herald
"The 12 stories in You Never Know come from a mature writer who has perfected her strongest feature — an ability to created a powerful and compassionate narrative voice. As a reader you go wherever the characters in this book lead you, not because they are admirable or wise — some are not — but because you trust them and they remind you of someone you know. With a smooth and lovely grace, Huggan leads us to recognize the stranger in ourselves, the distance that exists between us and others, including those we love."
The Globe and Mail
"These are 'women's stories' in the very best sense, rich in detail, full of sense and sensibility and with just enough ambiguity to seize the reader's imagination and hold it captive."
The Boston Sunday Globe
"Like someone who's just discovered enchanted waters, you come away from Isabel Huggan's stories happier and wiser, and thirsty for more. Her flawless, witty, experienced stories remind us what a pleasure it is to be in the presence of master."
Alberto Manguel
