Insane Media Coverage for Dundurn Titles This Week!

The Hamilton Spectator went mad with reviews for Dundurn titles this week and we don’t blame them, we’re a little crazy for our titles too. Crazy in the good sense of the word— if there is?!? mhaha.

Barbara Fradkin, author of The Whisper of Legends was dubbed by Hamilton Spectator “one of Canada's finest story tellers”— “Author Barbara Fradkin has written a story worthy of her status as one of Canada's finest story tellers. She pushes the boundaries that little bit further into the labyrinth of ‘What would I do if it were my child?’”

Twilight is Not Good for Maidens by Lou Allin was summed up as a perfectly put together story by the

Hamilton Spectator—“Lou Allin is the go-to writer for no-nonsense, well-told stories with tightly knit dialogue, energetic action that pushes the story through a maze of clues to a satisfying conclusion.”

Almost Criminal by E.R. Brown was a panic filled read for the Hamilton Spectator—“Almost Criminal tells a tale about parallel worlds, the one we live in and that instant society that flies under our radar. It's a tightrope from which one fall is fatal. Author E.R.Brown lays out the territory with tight pacing and insightful dialogue that captures the panic that is but one mistake away.”

The Globe and Mail was all about travel last week, and Arctic Twilight edited by Claudia Radmore was recommended by Michael Crummey as “a literary travel guide for the stay-at-home vacationer.”

Mark Richardson author of Canada’s Road was interviewed by the Globe and Mail on How to Plan the Perfect Cross-Canada Road Trip.

In the Winnipeg Free Press book review of Breakthrough! by John Melady, the narrative style of Melady was praised—“Melady's anecdotes are lively”

We agree Canadian inventions are lively. Where would we be without inventions, how did the world function, my mind is blown. 

 

Definitely crazy reviews in the good way this week!
