. . . 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)
About the Author
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.
