Praise

“This is a wonderfully funny book, with some serious undertones. Reading it, I was delighted to learn that life in the newsroom today is just as bizarre as it was when I was a reporter, long ago.”
–William Weintraub, author of Why Rock the Boat? and City Unique

The Grim Pig isn’t grim at all. It is chortle-and-snort-out-loud funny. The bizarre conversations between MacVeigh and the other members of his task force are brilliant. The constant use of unfinished sentences had me peering over my shoulder for possible conspirators.”
–Moira L. MacKinnon, The Hamilton Spectator

“Gordon, an Ottawa Citizen columnist, shows that he is a worthy Canadian successor to Evelyn Waugh, whose Scoop (1938) set the standard for the popular fictional debunking of journalistic pomposity.”
–Michael Benedict, Maclean’s
