Old Flames

Old_FlamesOld Flames is a comic and touching tale about the choices women make, about finding your dreams in the everyday, and about the unexpected friendship that grows between two women: a stay-at-home mom and an ambitious advertising executive. It’s also a homage to Broadway musicals!

“Delightful … it sings … the first person narrative creates an intimacy between the reader and the characters, who lift off the page and become old friends.” – The Globe and Mail

“Like her protagonists, Moritsugu’s writing style is neighbourly and clever … a breezy enjoyable read … a poignant reflection about the choices we make.” – Montreal Gazette

“Kim Moritsugu is the Tom Wolfe of midtown Toronto. With spot-on accuracy, she captures the mores and motions of life in a middle class neighbourhood, creating a sharply comic yet affectionate picture.” – Toronto Star

“What seems like delicious confection is actually very weighty stuff. Kim Moritsugu writes about our lives; she uncovers the small defeats and triumphs and makes them rattle the stars.
– Paul Quarrington, author of King Leary and Whale Music
