Her trilogy of miniature fiction-The World Afloat (2014), The Days (2016) and The Great Happiness (2019)—were also published by Talonbooks, as was her novel, The Strange Truth About Us – A Novel of Absence, which was chosen by The Globe & Mail as a Best Book of 2012.
Writer and broadcaster Bill Richardson has called her “a master of the Zen-like art of delivering weight in a way that is featherlight”.
“Farrant’s work is infused with iconoclastic innovation.” (Globe & Mail). BC Bookworld has called her “Canada’s most acerbic and intelligent humourist.” She has been described in print on numerous occasions as “the bizarro Alice Munro.”
