I write complimentary book reviews of
- Small Pieces Loosely Joined: A Unified Theory of the Web by David Weinberger
- Defiant Imagination by Max Wyman
- Sorry, I Don’t Speak French: Confronting the Canadian Crisis That Won’t Go Away by Graham Fraser
and the authors post comments and or drop me an email. Hurray for the internet.
I don’t write a book review but suggest, in complete violation of copyright, that a group of volunteers dictate and record the oldest of Newman’s works as MP3 files and publish the voice recordings online so as to create free audiobook versions of his work.
Peter C. Newman actually comments (note: he doesn’t protest against the idea) and justly notes that it is crazy that all but two of his works are out of print… That man is a legend.
Taylor and I publish what I think is possibly one of our strongest pieces – a critical review of Michael Byers, Intent for a Nation: What Is Canada For? in Embassy Magazine, and an extended version on our blogs.
Byers does not comment.
