“A ripping good read...Heart-breaking, hilarious and suspenseful...This is a consummately well-written book, achieving the near-impossible feat of maintaining a journalist’s objective distance while literally tracking her father’s fifty-year-old footsteps and disclosing painful family secrets with restraint and dignity.”

Notable Reviews

“In his new short fiction collection, What I Want To Tell Goes Like This (Nightwood Editions), Matt Rader turns Canada’s collective past into autobiography. Steeped largely in the brooding imagery of the Pacific Northwest, Rader makes the forgotten characters of Vancouver Island’s history his own—from striking coal miners to commune-running Russian religious exiles to cowboys who wandered just a little too far north from Montana. But his ability to capture the complicated pulse of history becomes clear not only while bringing to life those names long confined to archives and sepia-toned photographs. In fact, his writing thrives in describing everyday moments filled by unsaid or insufficient words, whether in bed with a loved one or unexpectedly downing whisky and beer at an airport bar with an old friend.”

Notable Reviews

“Filled with humour, frustration, joy, honesty, and insight, and just entertaining.”
~ Craig Orr, Ex. Director of Watershed Watch Salmon Society

“If fish could sing, they'd surely croon many a good tune for retired fishery officer Randy Nelson… 

Delivered in Nelson's light-hearted and entertaining way, it offers the reader a rare glimpse into the serious business of wildlife protection, and the sometimes frustrating bureaucracy within the federal fisheries department.”
~ Kristian Secher, The Tyee

“It’s entertaining reading: sometimes humorous, sometimes frustrating, sometimes frightening and sometimes sobering.”

Notable Reviews

“Illustrated by the much-honoured and beloved artist Roy Henry Vickers, Cloudwalker is a visually glorious book. Vickers and oral historian Robert Budd joined forces on last year’s lauded Raven Brings the Light, and with this follow-up—part of a series retelling First Nations legends of the Pacific Northwes—the duo once again uses a human character’s supernatural experiences to explain the origin of a natural element…
“A picture book, an ecologically minded adaptation of a traditional legend, and an art book all in one, Cloudwalker can be enjoyed by anyone, regardless of age.”
~ Quill & Quire, May 2014

Notable Reviews

“Rhodes dismisses the entire academic class of Canuck bards who look to Europe or Asia for their tutelage rather than face our “native” heritage of oppression…. I admire the radical sport of Rhodes’ lyrics and I admit my total support of his politics…Rhodes takes us down twisty, dangerous roads — of conscience and consciousness, forcing us to recognize the sins of our Confederation.”

Jay Ruzesky

In Antarctica: An Amundsen Pilgrimage
978-0-88971-282-9, $24.95, Paperback, Nightwood Editions

Notable Reviews

In Antarctica is a beautiful melding of the personal and the public, the past and the present, research and emotion. Ruzesky presents the facts of Amundsen’s life and work, yet also captures Amundsen’s dreams and despairs. Just as Amundsen was foiled in his goal of being the first man to reach the North Pole and had to change plans, so Ruzesky also failed follow exactly in Amundsen’s footsteps and reach the Pole. Both men adapted, doing what they were able to do, and creating compelling stories in the process.”
