Editorial Reviews


Rich, confusing and beautifully written in every line.- Jonathan Lethem, author of Fortress of Solitude and Motherless Brooklyn, on The Grammar Architect"Ask ten different people to prepare their own New Canadian Canon and you'll get ten very different lists. My own list would want to find a place for lively, inventive novels like Chris Eaton's The Grammar Architect."- Toronto Star, June 19, 2010"The Grammar Architect is a book you could easily read twenty times and still find new things to love about it. Eaton has written one of the most original, funny, beautifully written, and thoroughly complex novels of our young century."- Ghettoblaster Magazine, NYC"May well be the best Canadian novel of the year. This is the new."- Kitchener-Waterloo Record review of The Grammar Architect"An experiment worthy of Donald Barthelme at his most rascally... evidence of Eaton's status as one of Canada's most assured new writers."- Eye Magazine review of The Grammar Architect"...a clever satirical gloss on the sort of grave-robbing and body-stitching at the heart of derivative works such as A Thousand Acres and The Hours."- The Globe and Mail review of The Grammar Architect"...a burst of intricate, lyrical, well-developed writing, of a quality almost meriting the arrogant back-cover assertion that this novel is Ôlike a pop culture Gabriel Garcia Marquez's work.' A distinctive literary voice emerges... "- Waterloo Imprint review of The Grammar Architect" being deluged by a tidal wave of words... Eaton is a sincere poet and each word is carefully chosen. "- Here Magazine review of The Grammar Architect"An informal, visionary voice we don't hear enough of in CanLit..."-"What any writer is after in some primary, essential way is a texture that is all his/her own. I hear Eaton's texture in these pages, strident, assertive, commanding the turf, engaging me at once and sustaining the melody all the way. His style is constantly in motion, his characters define themselves by the very style that encloses them, and his larger subversive narrative voice sets them up like a malevolent straight man reversing the equation."- Lawrence Garber, author of Tales from the Quarter

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
alternately funny, sad, whimsical, surreal, confusing, and surprisingly clear, Eaton's third novel is definitely his best. just dive in and figure it out as you go along... you'll enjoy the process and the writing. Rarely cloying, and only occasionally annoying/confusing, it was a real delight to read. i don't know what's fact and what's fiction, and i truthfully don't care. can't wait to read this again!
