“Respectful yet probing, [Vassanji] creates a solid and intriguing biography of one of the most private yet profound writers of the Canadian scene.” – The Globe and Mail

“Sympathetic and distinguished.” – Winnipeg Free Press

“Elegantly compact…. Vassanji deliberately reads against the grain of the well-known Richlerian ‘gruff caricature,’ treating anecdotes with caution, aware that Richler’s memorializers might ‘use memory’ to embellish, reinvent, settle scores.” – Canadian Literature
