Praise for What They Wanted:
"It has become a truism in the past decade that some of the most dynamic fiction in Canada
originates with a handful of writers from the East Coast. Morrissey is one of those writers,
different in their ways, but all firmly of their place, creating and defining that place and giving
voice to it through fiction. But make no mistake, these are not regional or provincial writers. In
fact, universal truths are often more likely to originate from the smaller lanes than the grand
boulevards. Morrissey stands out for her descriptive powers, her wonderful turns of phrase and
the inner complexities of her characters.”
