Book Review: Even with my interest in natural history, I didn’t expect to find this five-hundred-plus-page tome all that engaging, given the dry title. Yet I found myself drawn in to Wetherell’s accessible, sometimes-passionate, always measured writing style.
Book Review: Thomas King is far more than a good writer, storyteller, and academic. He has a dazzling intelligence that quickly sees through so many of the “accepted” truths people are repeatedly fed by the media, and he skewers these with delightful humour and self-deprecation.
Book Review: Author and journalist Kay Parley spent years in a mental institution, first as a patient and then as a psychiatric nurse. Her book covers her institutionalization at Weyburn Mental Hospital in Saskatchewan — “The Mental” — after a 1948 breakdown as well as her work there from the mid-1950s and through the 1960s.
