Praise

A Globe and Mail Best Book

Praise for The New Layman’s Almanac:
“A rollicking debut from a young enthusiast with some of Walt Whitman’s beaming sincerity. . . . Mooney takes authentic and big literary risks, by exploring sincere emotionality, genuine political belief and considered poetic experiment. . . . This is Canada speaking, loud, clear, quirky and unashamed to be itself. This is surely one of the most audacious and fresh poetic debuts of the new Canadian century.”
- Globe and Mail

“[Mooney] offers a mischievous, postmodern spin on the ol’ compendium. . . . The raw material of much of Mooney’s work is familiar. . . . But these common subjects are refracted through an idiosyncratic, antic syntax. Above all, Mooney revels in playing with language. . . . A cerebral lark.”
- Toronto Star
