Praise for Running in the Family:

“Michael Ondaatje is here at his agile and evocative best…Brightly coloured, sweet and painful, bloody-minded and otherworldly, [Running in the Family] achieves the status of legend.” Margaret Atwood

“It’s a delight…Ondaatje captures you with his elegance.” The Calgary Herald

“A remarkable book…Shimmering through the haze of heat and memory is an impressionistic, sometimes surreal portrait of an exotic time and place now gone.” William French, The Globe and Mail

“A brilliant, charming, poetic, hyperbolic holiday of a book…Ondaatje elevates family lore into folklore on every page.” The Vancouver Province

“It dazzles with its range of imagination, richness of language and the consistently involving changes of mood and tempo.” Ken Adachi, The Toronto Star
