Product description

Review

"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

About the Author

B. Glen Rotchin has worked in the garment district of Montreal. His poetry and fiction have appeared in several literary journals, and he co-edited the poetry collections Jerusalem: An Anthology of Jewish Canadian Poetry and A Rich Garland: Poems for A.M. Klein.
