Quotes & Awards

  • “De Sa tells his story with a sure hand. Emotion is balanced by dark humor…Kicking the Sky is a rich and compulsively readable addition to the fiction of [Toronto], a novel that, like most of the good ones, is funny, heart-breaking and humane.”

    Toronto Star

  • “De Sa, who is described on the book’s cover as a librarian-teacher in Toronto, has given us a beguiling coming-of-age story—harked back to an event that shocked the country and had massive repercussions—and at the same time managed to beautifully capture a community and an era.”

    Globe and Mail (Toronto)

  • “The novel remains an impressive achievement: a synthesis of two fraught worlds. It reminds us that hidden gay lives blossom, or shrivel, inside every larger community. Kicking the Sky bridges its polarized worlds, staying true to the humanity in each. It’s one of the best things fiction can do.”

    National Post
