Reviews
"Both playful and profound, laced with insight from thinkers across a range of disciplines, from music to history, politics to literature, high to low culture."--National Post

"strong - heartfelt, funny, rigorous, practical without ever being preachy...a book that feels like a friend."--Montreal Gazette

"a learned, clear-sighted and occasionally funny collection of essays...highly persuasive"--Winnipeg Free Press

"Thoughtful meditations on the big questions of life (and death) ... Readers will not doubt their authenticity."--The Globe and Mail

Ray Robertson's Why Not? is first among the "five Canadian books you may not necessarily hear much about," but which "should be on reading radars everywhere." --The Globe and Mail

Praise for Moody Food:

"An engrossing novel, beautifully written." --Jim Harrison

"Robertson shares a literary wildness with Thomas Wolfe." --Cleveland Free Times

"A funny, generous, touching novel by a writer of genuine gifts." --Richard Currey, author, Fatal Light and Lost Highway

"The real star of Moody Food is the writing, with its displays of sharp humor and deep love of music." --Litkicks.com

"Clever, word-drunk, and falling-down funny... Robertson is a moral writer and a bitingly intelligent one, a man who writes with penetrating insight of what needs to be written about: beauty, truth and goodness." --Globe and Mail
