PressestimmenAdam's Peak was a pure joy from beginning to end ... Heather Burt has created a Canadian classic that deserves to be read by those who enjoy a book that not only entertains, but stimulates serious thinking. -- Shelf Life What carries Adam's Peak is its fluency in the ways of human isolation and connection. Among a large and diverse cast, each voice and exchange rings true. -- Jim Bartley, Globe and Mail This is much more than a cross-cultural love story. -- Lesley Hughes, Winnipeg Free Press Heather Burt's first novel is an unequivocal success ... Oddly moving because it is a strangely spectacular ordinariness that tips over into the transcendental here. -- Andrew Bartlett -- Canadian Literature 196
