This index covers reviews that have appeared here and in the pages of the Montreal Review of Books, The Walrus and Canadian Notes & Queries. French-language works appear with their original titles, though the majority were read in translation. For further discussion of these and other works – pretty much the bulk of this blog – the search and label features should be of help. I've been really good with those labels. Really.
A writer, ghostwriter, écrivain public, literary historian and bibliophile, I'm the author of Character Parts: Who's Really Who in CanLit (Knopf Canada, 2003), and A Gentleman of Pleasure: One Life of John Glassco, Poet, Translator, Memoirist and Pornographer (McGill-Queen's UP, 2011; shortlisted for the Gabrielle Roy Prize). I've edited over a dozen books, including The Heart Accepts It All: Selected Letters of John Glassco (Véhicule Press, 2013) and George Fetherling's The Writing Life: Journals 1975-2005 (McGill-Queen's UP, 2013). I currently serve as series editor for Ricochet Books and am a contributing editor for Canadian Notes & Queries.
