Praise

“A bibliophile’s dream .… I read these reviews with as much pleasure as I read the novels that gave rise to them. … This collection will remind the unapologetic reader that reading is more than a gift; it is an act of transcendence.”
–Aritha van Herk, Calgary Herald

“What if you haven’t read the novels …? Then I envy you. I greatly enjoyed Adams’s discussion of the books I know. But I adored even more his lectures on the books I haven’t got to yet. … Adams’s lectures make you itch to read.”
– Suanne Kelman, Globe and Mail

“[Adams] has single-handedly defeated the criteri, literature’s bloodless high priests.… The passion … rises off the pages. Readers come away resolved to read every book he mentions.”
Ottawa Citizen

“A taste of the critic’s wares.… Adams’s insights sparkle with a wit and a humanity rare among his kind.”
–Brett Grainger, Elm Street

“You can hear Adams as you read. He writes as he speaks – clearly, wittily, passionately. … Adams gives fullness and resonance to his readings. He reads the past – characters, authors, old books – into the present to the enrichment of both.”
–J.S. Porter, Hamilton Spectator
