Call Me Stan is a ludicrous epic and a tender-hearted romp—an easy-reading humanist adventure that feels as if Monty Python rewrote Virginia Woolf's Orlando.
— Sean Michaels, author of The Wagers and Giller Prize-winner Us Conductors.
"Stan is a tour de force, a rich and vibrant novel that marries deep history, character, and perspective to give us a new view of the world and how we can live in it. And it accomplishes these deep intricacies with a narrative so engaging, characters so 'relatable,' while being so different that we feel our good fortune in encountering it. By opening a window on history, Wilson opens a window on ourselves - our assumptions about the world and how we, as human beings, might choose to live in it. Only a perspective like Stan’s can reveal for us the possibilities when we let go of our assumptions." — Laura McRae, author of Distributaries and Were There Gazelle
