Joe Sullivan reviews Monkeybicycle 9, on “Shapeway”:

  • I have not read a story I’ve loved as much as I love Colleen Morrissey’s ‘Shapeway’ from Monkeybicycle 9. I’ve read it several times. I’ve taken it to bed with me.

If you need one reason to buy this issue, this is it: ‘Shapeway.’”

Christopher McCormick at The Review Review reviews Monkeybicycle 9, on “Shapeway.”

  • “There is plenty to appreciate in Monkeybicylce9, but “Shapeway” – unbelievably Ms. Morrissey’s fiction debut – demands to be singled out by this reviewer…  I’d be surprised if Ms. Morrissey isn’t an avid reader of Alice Munro- she has the same compassion for her characters, imperfect but morally tuned, and a similar ability to write quiet sentences full of longing and heart, vacant of sentimentality. I’d be surprised, too, if I don’t see more stories soon from Colleen Morrissey.”

Jamie Yates at Chicago Ex-Patriate reviews Monkeybicycle9, on “Shapeway.”
