"The moments (in The Consequence of Skating) are small and detailed and probably the best compliment that can be given Gillis is that, as we move through them with (the protagonist) Mick, we really get a sense for what it might feel like to be an actor who is suddenly scriptless, an obsessed boyfriend who finds himself without a partner, a broken man forced to put his life back together. 'Everything is recovery,' Mick says. 'Think. Act. Redo... The cause and effect causes cause and effect, the link inexorable... I take one step and then another, until I am across the floor and in my kitchen. In my kitchen I turn on the machine for coffee. Once I have turned on the coffee, I go and rinse my cup.'"--Dave Housley, American Book Review
