Editorial Reviews

“Lea is playful rather than didactic, and he loads his work with gorgeously consonant lines … and surprising humour.”Globe and Mail

Understander is a book of standout lines amongst fragments and the employment of listing as technique.”The Rumpus

Everything is Movies is a rollicking and elastic first collection and it announces Lea as a voice to listen for.”Matrix Magazine
