“Gerry Turcotte’s Flying in Silence is a book of boyhood memoirs and family secrets, yet it creates a genre all of its own. It contains an anatomy of depression and speaks of a family’s inability to cohere…it swells with compassion and a deep commitment to our life and living... musical in both its shape and function... a testament to being human.” - Australian Book Review
