What Others Are Saying
I quite like Jacob’s Ladder. It’s smart and extremely observant. It throbs with the excessive and obsessive qualities of its journal-entry design. This book wants to add to the sum of what’s important and make known about life what isn’t known yet. And in many, many ways it does so.
- Richard Ford, Pulitzer Prize-winning, author of Independence Day
This wonderful novel introduces a new fictional landscape: suburban, Anglophone Montreal. Life for its denizens is just a little different – distinct, one might say – and Jacob Glassman, witness and participant, is one of the most appealing characters I’ve met in years.
