January 28, 2012 - Hardcover UK edition of Evolution is just out!
From the Scotsman - "This may be a bagatelle of a novel, but it is one with so much charm and erudition it is more memorable than any door-stopping wodge of prose presenting itself as a diagnosis of the state of the nation."

January 1, 2012 - New British Reviews!
“Karlinsky’s retelling of Darwinian family history is ingeniously wry and original. Prepare to be moved, amused and duped when you enter this quasi Victorian World.”
Essie Fox, Author of The Somnambulist.

“Just when you think there’s nothing new to be done with the novel, along comes a book that pushes the form in a fresh direction. Harry Karlinsky’s extraordinary book slyly and playfully blurs the boundaries between fact and fiction, asking where one begins and the other ends.The Evolution of Inanimate Objects is the work of a genuinely original imagination, a complete pleasure and like no other book you have ever read.”
John Harding, author of Florence & Giles

August 18, 2011 - Evolution of Inanimate Objects reviewed in July/Aug 2011 issue of the Literary Review of Canada - “a compelling tale … entertaining … a great read”
Full review

Evolution of Inanimate Objects has also been lauded as a “jeu d'esprit” (Globe and Mail) and as a “delightfully imaginative book” (Historical Novels Review), praised for its “brilliant conception and well thought out execution” (Broken Pencil); and as “Poignant. Erudite. Understated. It is a first novel signaling the arrival of a serious and inventive new writer on the Canadian scene” (The Vancouver Sun).
