Advance Praise for New Tab:

Set in a Montreal as vividly its own as Richler’s, Morissette’s fresh and original generational take brims with uncommon observations, understood character and abundantly happy-sad situations. A terrific read and a shining souvenir.  —David McGimpsey

Weird, poetic, funny and original. I tore through it. —Jonathan Goldstein

The deconstruction of regrets, an email with feelings and the screaming universe cement Morissette as both a master of the absurd and a seer of the real. I lol’d.  —Melissa Broder
