Praise

National Bestseller

“This peppy memoir of a life on the road and at home finds Alan Doyle, singer-songwriter and erstwhile front man for Great Big Sea, in fine form. . . . Doyle has an eye for details, an ear for a good story and a well-honed ability to play out a yarn of his own. . . . He is deft enough to bring a light and comedic touch to the telling [of his stories].” —Atlantic Books

“Newfoundland’s streets and highways are as random and surprising as the man himself. Maybe his routes are his roots. What amazes me, is for all he has seen and done, Alan Doyle has never put another human being down. You won’t be able to put him down either. You will get lost on his account. Lost on a brilliant journey in a remarkable book.” —Ron MacLean, host of Hockey Night in Canada
 
“A laugh-riot kitchen party on wheels that will make you fall in love with Canada all over again. Alan Doyle’s heart is as big as his talent.” —Denise Donlon, media executive and author of Fearless as Possible (Under the Circumstances)
 
“Doyle’s effortless storytelling will have you on his side from the first page. He writes like he sings: with a sincerity and a love of life that is infectious. As you read this book, you’ll fall in love with Canada for the first time again, even if you’ve lived here all your life. A Newfoundlander in Canada is like the country itself—much bigger than you first realize and filled to the brim with optimism, laughter, and wide-eyed wonder. As we say in Newfoundland, ‘it’s wicked.'” —Mark Critch, comedian and cast member on This Hour Has 22 Minutes

Praise for Where I Belong:

 • “Excellent adventure. I feel like I’ve lived another’s life.” —Russell Crowe, actor/musician
 • “As Great Big Sea’s frontman, Alan Doyle is exuberant, irreverent, hilariously funny and a heart-on-the-sleeve Newfoundlander. As a writer, he’s all that and a bag of chips. Doyle’s description of growing up on the hills and wharves of old world Petty Harbour is intimate, saucy and note-perfect. In his own words: Deadly.” —Michael Crummey, award-winning author of Galore
 • “Alternately laugh-out-loud funny, tearfully nostalgic and stunningly beautiful, the stories in Where I Belong have nothing to do with the famous and everything to do with the legendary. . . . The beating heart of life itself runs through this book.” —Huffington Post
