Product Details


“Robinson’s sting worked precisely as the trickster in her intended. . . . Like Leonard Cohen, Robinson combines a variety of narrative forms and conflicting styles with such a high degree of technical virtuosity that the very act of reading a cracked and splintered narrative becomes spellbinding, addictive, unstoppable.”
Globe and Mail

“Eden Robinson writes with the violent beauty of a seasoned knifefighter. . . . In her hands, language is a weapon that can leave you bleeding, unsure of just how you were cut. Reading Eden Robinson feels dangerous.”
National Post

Blood Sports is a stomach-churning sucker punch of a read for a very talented risk taker.”
NOW magazine

“A gripping page-turner of a tale. . . . A novel of extreme, even diabolical contrasts. . . . Robinson imbues her novel with continual suspense, carnal voyeurism, and of course, hope.”
—Calgary Herald

Blood Sports is both startlingly original and highly emotionally engaging.”
Winnipeg Free Press

“In print, Robinson is Poe on smack: dark, disturbing and frequently bloody. . . .With spare, taut writing and scenes of torture that would make Spanish Inquisitor Torquemada proud, Robinson has conjured up gripping, page-turning horror in the vein of early Stephen King.”
—CBC Arts Online

Blood Sports is very good: exciting, unexpected and clever.”
Georgia Straight

“Eden Robinson writes some of the most disturbing fiction that Canadian literature has ever seen.”
Quill & Quire
