Reviews

"Robinson's sting worked precisely as the trickster in her intended. . . . Like Leonard Cohen, Robinson combines a variety of narrative forms and conflicting styles with such a high degree of technical virtuosity that the very act of reading a cracked and splintered narrative becomes spellbinding, addictive, unstoppable."
--Globe and Mail

"Eden Robinson writes with the violent beauty of a seasoned knifefighter. . . . In her hands, language is a weapon that can leave you bleeding, unsure of just how you were cut. Reading Eden Robinson feels dangerous."
--National Post

"Blood Sports is a stomach-churning sucker punch of a read for a very talented risk taker."
--NOW magazine "A gripping page-turner of a tale. . . . Blood Sports is a novel of extreme, even diabolical contrasts that explore by the awful and the beautiful faces of Vancouver. . . . Robinson imbues her novel with continual suspense, carnal voyeurism, and of course, hope."
--Calgary Herald "Blood Sports is both startlingly original and highly emotionally engaging."
--Winnipeg Free Press "In print, Robinson is Poe on smack: dark, disturbing and frequently bloody. . . .With spare, taut writing and scenes of torture that would make Spanish Inquisitor Torquemada proud, Robinson has conjured up gripping, page-turning horror in the vein of early Stephen King."
--CBC Arts Online "
Blood Sports is very good: exciting, unexpected and clever."
--Georgia Straight "Eden Robinson writes some of the most disturbing fiction that Canadian literature has ever seen."
--Quill & Quire
