Praise for Gently Down the Stream

“Among the most talented of a younger flight of Canadian novelists.”

Owen Sun Sound Times

“Robertson’s art is as character-driven as Mordecai Richler’s, and he is becoming an equally brilliant observer and writer on human weakness who wants us all to behave better and doesn’t care who he angers along the way.”

Globe and Mail

“Funny and thoughtful.”

Edmonton Journal

“One of Canada’s finest novelists.”

Ottawa Express

“Robertson’s knack for creating interesting characters is matched by his ear for language. [H]e has given readers a funny, recognizable, contemporary portrait of disaffected manhood. With this compulsively readable, intelligent, witty and sad novel, Robertson deserves to achieve mainstream fame.”
