When The Earth Was Flat
Remembering Leonard Cohen, Alden Nowlan, the Flat Earth Society, the King James monarchy hoax, the Montreal Story Tellers and other curious matters
"Reading WHEN THE EARTH WAS FLAT is next best thing to a voyage of discovery, a ride on a runaway train, the thrill of a roller coaster, and a front row seat in the theatre of the absurd. This wonderfully entertaining book is the work of a gifted and accomplished author." HILARY PRINCE, The Guardian
“If you’re familiar with some of the Canadian literary lights of the late 60s and into the 70s, or if you've ever been amused by Alden Nowlan's work, or the Flat Earth Society, or if you've ever wondered what Leonard Cohen was like before he became an international sensation, or if you've ever had dreams of grandeur, or tried your hand at writing yourself, or if you've ever wrestled with the lure of alcohol.... If you fall into any of these categories, you won't be sorry you picked up Raymond Fraser's book When The Earth Was Flat. It's a terrific read, highly amusing and very informative, and a valuable record of a time and place.” GLENN MURRAY, author of Walter the Farting Dog.
"Farley Mowat has called this insightful, powerful and comedic writer "the best literary voice to come belling out of the Maritimes in decades." TELEGRAPH-JOURNAL
