What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

"An absolutely thrilling read. All six stories vibrate with rich detail and a kinetic narrative. But what makes this book truly special is Anton Piatigorsky's ability to harness and exploit the reader's pre-existing knowledge of, and chilling fascination with, his terrifying protagonists." — Albert Schultz, artistic director, Soulpepper Theatre

"An astounding collection of intricate and rigorous character studies. The Iron Bridge bravely takes us deep into the nuanced, damaged psyches of men we would prefer to think of as monsters. Thrilling, brazen, brilliant, and deeply felt. The most compelling stories I've read in years." — Sarah Polley, writer-director, Away from Her

"With an invigorating mix of classic storytelling and inventiveness, Anton Piatigorsky's pitch-perfect, acutely attuned stories delve deep, and far, and wide, The Iron Bridge is an assured, unique collection, and a seamless transition to fiction from one of our best playwrights." — Pasha Malla, author of People Park
