Hooked on Canadian Books: The Good, the Better, and the Best Canadian Novels Since 1984



Having been a contributing reviewer for The Globe and Mail for more than twenty years, T.F. Rigelhof knows good literature. Hooked on Canadian Books is a conversational survey of the novels published since 1984 he deems to be “the good, the better, and the best.” In addition to his readings of well-known Canadian writers, he brings the work of newer and lesser-known voices to more deserving attention, relates personal moments shared with his picks, details his relationship with the Montreal bookstore that got him hooked in the first place, all while defending Canadian literature from stereotypes, celebrating its successes, and promoting its future. Perfect for book clubs.
