Critical Praise for The Englishman's Boy:
"Guy Vanderhaeghe is simply a wonderful writer. The Englishman's Boy, spanning as it does two countries, two centuries, two views of history--the Canadian Wild West as 'imagined' by Hollywood--is a great accomplishment. Readers, I think, will find this book irresistible." --Richard Ford
"[A] fine new novel...Guy Vanderhaeghe deftly juxtaposes the events of two different time periods to dramatize his concern with history...by turns a western, a critique of Hollywood, and a novel of ideas." --John Motyka, The New York Times Book Review
"An epic tale that brings together the American West before the turn of the century with the Hollywood of the 1920s...Each segue from past to present to past again is a graceful little leap between subtly matched gestures and images." --Katharine Weber, Los Angeles Times
"Fascinating...Vanderhaeghe seamlessly alternates two interconnected stories...Masterful storytelling." --Entertainment Weekly
"A compelling yarn that delivers provocative intellectual content about the ways our tendency to mythologize history can prevent us from learning its lessons." --David Wiegand, San Francisco Chronicle
