"I’m grateful for the many books – including this latest – that Margoshes has ingeniously brought into this world, and made us all the richer for reading."
"This page-turner has much to say about wealth, corruption, malaise, aging, beauty (narrator Fiona is hyper-aware of physical appearance), relationships that are not what they seem to be, grief, and loneliness."
" In breathing at dusk, Goobie’s 2017 poetry collection with Coteau Books, the Saskatoon writer again addresses some difficult themes – chiefly childhood sexual abuse – and delivers work that pours light on the darkness of her own Ontario childhood, while reconciling – often through music and nature – that it’s possible to heal from the unthinkable."

"As the Taoists and the haiku masters know, you don’t need a lot or words to say a great deal. Margoshes dips into that wisdom as he reckons with his life."
"The Small Things That End The World is a remarkable and beautiful book describing both the external and internal journey three women travel over the course of three generations. Lovingly, but without a trace of sentimentality, Lynes has created three women who deserve a place alongside other iconic female characters in modern literature."
