"The Rent Collector is a stunning debut. I can safely say this, because I'm stunned that this is the first novel Rotchin has published--it seems too self-assured, too well-written, and too wise to be such a thing." —Paul Quarrington, author of Whale Music and Galveston
"This complex, sensitive and erudite story thrusts us into a series of historical, spiritual and religious grey areas.... Rotchin's warm, aphoristic voice... skilfully crafts moments of humour, wisdom and sensuality." —Hour (Montreal)
"B. Glen Rotchin... [uses] an old-fashioned realist approach to tell an insistently small story with utmost care. The result is a genuine pleasure, a first novel of insight and tenderness." —The Gazette
