Praise

“Masterful.…This book should be compulsory reading for anyone entering the book trade, toiling in it now or in an occupation, such as politics, constantly brushing against the business.… The Perilous Trade unobtrusively, quite fetchingly, conveys a massive amount of research, yet also manages to be a brilliantly seductive cultural history of Canada.”
–Greg Gatenby, The Globe and Mail

"[MacSkimming] has given us a history driven by an engaging narrative and a cast of remarkable characters."
–Christopher Moore, The Beaver

“A truly marvellous book for all those interested in Canadian authors and publishers and the books they create.”
— Mel Hurtig
