Some nice things people have said about my latest book.

Brilliant is not too strong a word to describe Everything Is Awful and You're a Terrible Person. Funny, wicked, moving, profane and sad come to mind too. This is a bomb of a book wrapped up in 32 short stories ... It feels like an explosion of fresh air. —Vancouver Sun

Written in flat, earnest prose reminiscent of the 'Alt-Lit' movement, Zomparelli’s stories pull humor from the banalities of lives devoted to anonymous sex, cellphone apps and social media. —New York Times

It’s called Everything is Awful and You're a Terrible Person and it delivers, tongue-in-cheek. —The Globe and Mail

Zomparelli's book -- like his body of work -- does the smart and risky thing of trying the same questions on for size over and over again, probing the edges of our hang-ups with agitation and admiration. —Quill and Quire

Juicy, funny, and thoroughly absorbing ... This book, full of hookups and texts and chemically enhanced evenings, is about a particular kind of modern gay experience, and there is a pleasure to seeing oneself, one’s city, one’s generation laid out in such buoyant, fun prose. —Winnipeg Review
