In Another Life
"IN ANOTHER LIFE is heart-warming and heart-wrenching all at once. It’s the real deal, a genuine masterpiece of storytelling, sadly beautiful, and perhaps Fraser's finest work to date." STEPHEN PATRICK CLARE, The Book Club, Halifax
"A masterfully crafted novel set against the plush Miramichi River region of the 1950’s and 1960’s. Fredericton scribe Raymond Fraser proves again why he is one of Atlantic Canada’s finest writers with the beautiful and haunting tragic-comedy of one boy’s rise to prominence in his community and his slow descent into the throes of alcoholism. IN ANOTHER LIFE is a powerful and poignant story that will capture the minds and hearts of readers. Think 'Catcher in the Rye' meets Hemingway and Bukowski." LEAP MAGAZINE
"IN ANOTHER LIFE is a work of great love. It's a beautifully wrought story, tragic, poignant and full of rich detail." ROBERT LECKER, author & critic
"Fraser is a master wordsmith, a subtle humourist and a clever writer whose talent has never been as widely recognized as it should be." MICHAEL O. NOWLAN, The Gleaner
"I can't find words to describe just how extraordinary I think this novel is... It's been a long time since I've read a book that really gets inside a man's head. It’s a triumph in making characters come alive (I fell deeply in love with Corinne!). A great Canadian novel."
— PHILIP DESJARDINS, Philip Desjardins Productions
"IN ANOTHER LIFE is funny, sad and always humane. One thing that sets it apart from almost all other novels is the flow of the writing. I read through 80 pages without realizing it, it was so hard to put down. The author says things with precise and delicate care, and a great sense of humour." ERIC MYERS
