Praise

“Reading Greg Malone’s memoir is a lot like being a kid and somehow getting to see the inside of your teacher’s house. When you’re used to seenig someone in an awe-inspiring capacity, you don’t often imagine what the story behind them is. When you get a peek inside and you see where their inspiration comes from, they take on a new light.”
The Telegram (St. John’s)

“It will put a smile on your face. Malone…is a great storyteller, capable of making you feel like you’re travelling to a different time and place — even one that’s not as perfect as it might first appear.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“[A] delicately written book . . . [A] deeply felt memoir.”
The Globe and Mail

“Colourful, detailed storytelling, with a vein of humour running through.”
Toronto Star

“[A] soft, gentle book filled with funny and heartwarming anecdotes.”
Ottawa Citizen

“A very funny book. Greg Malone is a comedy legend, one of the funniest men in a part of the world where funny is king. Now we see why. A wonderful grand read.”
— Rick Mercer

“Written by a natural born storyteller, Greg Malone’s memoir is detailed, precise and unflinchingly honest. Gifted with a prodigious memory, his story is poignant, funny, harrowing and tender. With this book Greg Malone proves himself to be a writer of deep intelligence with a profound understanding of the absurdities of life.”
— Joan Clark, author of An Audience of Chairs and Latitudes of Melt

“Malone’s eye for detail, his insights into the adults who ruled over the mystifying world of his younger self, give this memoir depth and momentum. In You Better Watch Out I find the seeds of compassion, the fumbling towards understanding of our human foibles, that would mature into theatre that Malone and his contemporaries used so brilliantly to kick-start this town, and indeed Canada, towards becoming a more open, accepting society.”
— Bernice Morgan, author of Random Passage and Cloud of Bone

“In this superlative memoir Malone sweeps us from his origins to the edge of manhood in a beguiling and highly readable way.”
— Paul O’Neill, OC, author of How Dog Became a Friend
