“Not since Henry Miller has the reader been taken on such a high energy tour of the seedier side of Paris. David MacKinnon in his novel, Leper Tango, has a lively, wry and sarcastic sense of humour rarely seen in novels. And best of all the reader is taken on a wild ride of the seamier areas of Montreal such as explored in Michel Tremblay’s play, Ste-Carmen de la Main.”
