Jigsaw Reviewed in the British Columbia Review

Heidi Greco reviewed Jigsaw: A Puzzle in Ninety-Three Pieces, the latest work from the ever-witty M.A.C. Farrant.

From the review:

“The book is a compendium of delightfully quirky short pieces, each commenting on some aspect of puzzle-making. Although the author’s focus is primarily the joy of jigsaw puzzles, she does credit other kinds of brain workouts, from crossword puzzles through Sudoku.

…Several of Farrant’s entries go by the title “Whimsy Piece”—a term that refers to puzzle bits that have been cut into some recognizable shape. …Farrant’s ‘whimsy pieces’ share some particular bon mot that sparkles in its own way.”
