. . . this book is as useful to locals as it is to tourists. . .
-The Globe & Mail (Globe & Mail)
Here is an excellent key to the city that not just visitors but many Montrealers will want to have.
-The National Post (National Post)
[I] wholeheartedly recommend this book, which says a lot about this city you won't find anywhere else, both for tourists and residents. Tourists will get a great introduction, and locals will discover new dimensions to old places.
-Montreal Review of Books (Montreal Review)
Whether you are a first time visitor to Montreal or a native, you will definitely garner precious information after reading this book. Highly recommended.
. . . a new, more charasmatic guide to Montreal's lesser-known places and people. . .
-Montreal Mirror (Montreal Mirror)
Part tourist reference, part compendium of lore, Montreal is a witty, engrossing addition to the innovative series of guidebooks published by Vancouver's Arsenal Pulp Press.
-Georgia Straight (Georgia Straight)
The authors' wonky spin on things local is not only useful but hugely entertaining.
-The Gazette (The Gazette)
Kristian Gravenor loiters endlessly around Montreal's west end, spending countless hours staring out at Oxford Park. He periodically finds time to write local news stories and a weekly city column for the Montreal Mirror.
A news editor with CanWest Interactive, John David Gravenor was editor of the weekly Hudson & St Lazare Times, and literary critic for The National Post and Montreal's Gazette. He remembers where he was when Elvis died.
