"Raymond Fraser is a natural story teller. His talent with narrative is second to none in this country...THE GRUMPY MAN stories are an incredible expose of the human condition."
— MICHAEL O. NOWLAN, The Daily Gleaner
"A pleasure to read from beginning to end. I doubt many writers could comment on their time as skilfully as Fraser has in this collection, or comment with so much wit and using such great characters."
— JUDY BOWMAN, The Miramichi Leader
"Fraser has a finely-tuned ear for verbal irony and terseness that is oddly compelling. These stories are well-crafted and insightful." — CANADIAN LITERATURE
"Reading Fraser's writing is like listening to the voice of an epoch. He explores the things that made the sixties and seventies so legendary."
— MICAH O'DONNELL, The Aquinian
"One of Canada's top writers at the top of his game. A great read!"
— GAIL MACMILLAN
"A compelling collection of quirky characters by one of the country's finest literary craftsmen."
— STEPHEN CLARE, The Book Club radio show, Halifax
"Fraser is a superb storyteller whose stories and novels are always universally valid. He is no less than Canada's greatest living fiction writer."
— MICHAEL VAUGHAN
