The Calgary Herald ran a review of Sina Queyras's Autobiography of Childhood, a reissue of an earlier review by the Vancouver Sun's Tracy Sherlock:

'The language is lyrical, circular at times, as is the story. But the novel’s strength is in its multi-dimensional look at the characters as they tell their tales.

'It’s a sad story, but in many ways it’s universal. Everybody dies, we all lose siblings, and we all inevitably lose our childhood. Queyras has created a layered, intense look at relationships, life and families in her first novel.'
