`Ultimately, Robin is a heartbreaker, because she is so vibrantly written that her isolation and compassionate nature make her psychosis feel real, and elicit sympathy at a much deeper level than would have occurred in a novel that didn’t originate from within her fractured mind. Because there are few major events in the book, with action dwelling instead on Robin’s long days and shadowy nights, Rozanski wisely concentrates instead on making Robin as tangible as possible, and because of this she lingers long after the last page.’ (Elizabeth Millard ForeWord )
`Banana Kiss is a sympathetic but never mawkish portrayal of a woman who suffers the horrors of a damaged mind and yet always retains her dignity. We can deeply empathize with Robin’s world. Her unique version of reality is portrayed with so much truth that we begin to understand how it’s possible that such a world can make sense in Robin’s mind. Even though we shudder to think how agonized that mind is, we can delight in her lively personality, eccentric sense of humour, and quirky take on life. … Robin’s story reminds us how delicately we tread the realm of sanity, and her experiences constantly challenge definitions of sanity. As a result, we emerge from her story with a greater understanding of the unremitting suffering and surprising joys that a life like Robin’s can bring.’ (Laurel Smith Quill and Quire )
`In Banana Kiss, Bonnie Rozanski coaxes the comedy out of a love affair between a schizophrenic and a manic depressive.’ (Stephen Smith Globe and Mail )
`In her debut novel, Banana Kiss, New Jerseyite Bonnie Rozanski explores the world through — and behind — the eyes of Robin Farber, a young woman hospitalized with schizophrenia. It’s a harrowing experience, but emotionally immediate, as lucidity blends with delusion, and reality shares space with fantasies and horrors drawn from Robin’s dreams and memories. Rozanski, a University of Guelph graduate, sharply renders both Robin’s internal world, at a tangent from reality, and her physical world, surrounded by family (including her insidious sister, who is about to marry Robin’s former lover, Max), fellow travellers (including the dynamic Derek, whose manic depression is accelerated to a crippling degree) and medical professionals, who treat Robin with a kindness and gentleness at odds with her perception of them.
`Banana Kiss is not without its flaws, chiefly an ending that seems to come too quickly and too easily for all of the carefully laid groundwork, but it is powerful, compelling storytelling and a unique reading experience.’ (Robert Wiersema Globe and Mail )
Robin Farber lives in a psychiatric institution. In her mind, she creates the world by looking at it: a quantum theory-world where matter pops in and out of existence as she observes it, a world where she is God. And, because the reader of Banana Kiss must take a long look through her schizophrenic eyes, this is our world, too, a world where the disembodied voices Robin hears are more real than the people who stand in front of her.
Robin’s world is populated by a rich variety of characters, both real and imaginary. Her father, a sailor who died when she was a baby, shows up in her head whenever he’s on leave. Derek, her charming, lovelorn friend, goes from mania to depression and back several times a day. There’s her insufferable sister Melissa, who stole her boyfriend, Max. And, of course, there’s Dr Mankiewicz, or `Whitecoat’, the long-suffering therapist who, Robin tells us, `thinks there are some things that are real, and some things that are not, and that he knows better than anyone else.’ Finally, there is Robin herself, whose confused, psychotic, funny, compassionate voice is one you are not likely to forget.

In a thrill a minute read, author Paul McKellips poses a frightening “what if” scenario that will leave the human race on the brink of certain disaster. When a series of attacks on animal researchers leave several people dead, the government–including the President–issues an immediate ban on animal testing. And that’s when the real trouble begins…
At the heart of the action are two government agents, the dashing Commander “Camp” Campbell, a man as decorated for his bravery in Iraq as for his own self-professed charm. Lieutenant Colonel Leslie Raines is the more practical of the two, a woman defined by her dedication to rules. Camp has returned to the States, newly reassigned to a government-funded test site. When the ban on animals comes down, Camp pulls a restless act by making off with two hundred rats…and winds up in deep trouble. He is immediately banished for a year, his superiors hoping the ramifications of his stunt will have worn off by then. Raines, uncharacteristically covering for him, finds herself joining him. But where they are headed only increases the risk–both to themselves, to the scientist whose very existence is threatened…and the future of the human race.
Who is really behind the ban on animal testing? And why? Could a deadly, dangerous fanatical group be behind the threat of a new vein of plague sweeping across the country…or worse, could it be someone people have come to trust?
