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.”
