“… a moving portrait of a significant voice on the Canadian literary scene.”

Rob Mclennan, Ottawa Poetry Newsletter

“Watching John Stiles … is like watching someone lost in a trance. He squeezes his eyes shut,
channels the voices of his speakers and loudly emits sounds of growling dogs,
wailing sirens and non-verbal whoops of joy and despair.”

Geoff Pevere, The Toronto Star

“…utterly absorbing … A fascinating portrait of a fascinating subject.”

Tom McSorley, Director of The Canadian Film Institute

“Scouts Are Cancelled is one the best contemporary literary biographies of the last decade.”
