My new book, Gratoony the Loony, written with Gilles Gratton, has already had a number of reviews, from publications big to small. Publishers Weekly, an influential trade magazine, called it a "quirky memoir" and "honest, open, and fun." My favourite sentence might be from the Winnipeg Free Press review by Sheldon Birnie: "Those with an interest in the wilder and woollier days of professional hockey’s history will surely enjoy Gratton’s conversational (and, at times, rather crude) tone and delight (or recoil in horror) at his antics, both on and off the ice." So read it if you dare!
