The Black Horse Tavern

New revised edition with an Introduction by the author

Authored by Raymond Fraser
Edition: 2nd

THE BLACK HORSE TAVERN is Raymond Fraser's landmark first book of fiction. Revised and edited by the author, this long-awaited definitive edition features a novella and nine stories, along with a new Introduction

"All ten stories in THE BLACK HORSE TAVERN bear the Fraser touch: gutsy realism, originality, and humour. The effect is hilarious, moving, and sad. It's quite a book." BETTY SHAPIRO, Montreal Gazette

"Raymond Fraser is one of the most gifted writers I know, and among his gifts are two that are all too rare: a zest for life and a sense of humour. He belongs to the timeless tradition of story tellers." ALDEN NOWLAN

"Rattling good yarns without managed thrills and contrived tension, THE BLACK HORSE TAVERN is the reflection of a man who has lived a life far from quiet desperation. Like Fraser's poetry, it is relentless, subtle, disturbing, bearing the stamp of immediately recognizable talent and nifty writing." JOHN RICHMOND, Montreal Star

"The best literary voice to come belling out of the Maritimes in decades." FARLEY MOWAT

"A highly original voice that is occasionally sad, sometimes very comic. A real pleasure to read." ALAN DAWE, Vancouver Sun

"One of Canada's truly great writers." GAIL MACMILLAN, Author, Ceilidh's Quest
