Praise for Home Movies

“An auteur of genuine talent picking up his camera for the first time.”

Globe & Mail


“Robertson hits many sweet notes.”

Quill and Quire

“Robertson shares a literary wildness with Thomas Wolfe . . . a syncopated sprawling experience.”

Cleveland Free Times

“Word play so ingenious that many times I had to stop reading in fast, eager gulps to re-read (and smile at) a gem of a passage . . . a deeply intellectual work.”


“Robertson requires sentences that require response, syntactic celebrations that rattle in your brain, long after reading them . . . a style and sense of humour reminiscent of word-drunk authors like Barry Hannah, Thomas McGuane and Leon Rooke.”

Quarter After Eight

“Robertson has a lush, extravagant prose style . . .Home Movies is a delightful debut.”

-Canadian Book Review Annual
