Kerry Clare, editor of 49th Shelf, had this to say about The House on Selkirk Avenue:
“Irena Karafilly’s new novel, The House on Selkirk Avenue, is a mesmerizing trip along the streets of Montreal and across decades of the experience of its protagonist, who has returned to the city of her youth. What happens when the places where we once belonged … and the people we once belonged to … don’t belong to us anymore?”
