Although I am a big booster for Montreal authors and Montreal publishers, a good deal of books that stood out for me in 2017 were either published locally, or written by an author who was born in Montreal or currently resides here. It’s a strong testimony to how Montreal still has a thriving, nurturing literary scene. So, without further ado, here are my favourite books of 2017. Game Change by Ken Dryden and Obama: An Intimate Portrait by Pete Souza.

This way, the audience uses their imagination and actively interfaces with the tale, rather than just sitting back and letting the story wash over them like they do in a movie. That was what was exciting about the project for me. Ella June Conroy, Jill Zarin, Fessenden, Jack Ketchum. PALE MEN: Prior to working on Little Nasties, What was your experience of audio drama?

a rare and profoundly personal glimpse of the drive, dedication and focus behind today's light-and-fast ascents. House's Beyond the Mountain is raw, funny, and tragic, but never forced. Above all else, this is a story of goals fueled by energy, rewards, and triumphs meshed with soul-baring confession. By the end I was almost jaded (this isn't a complaint) by descriptions such as House's solo ascent of K7 in thirty hours.

Intriguing and entertaining true stories about the people, places, and events that shaped Montreal that you won't find in any history books.

MONTREAL. . . BEYOND THE HISTORY BOOKS

If you think you know everything about Montreal, think again! Can you answer these questions about this fascinating city?

- Which English governess, who inspired a popular Broadway musical and several movies, spent her final years in Montreal and is buried in Mount Royal Cemetery?

- What tragic circumstances in 1919 caused the only undecided Stanley Cup final in history -- between the Montreal Canadiens and the Seattle Metropolitans?

- What presidential assassin spent several weeks in Montreal, as he put together the plot that would lead to the death of the 16th President of the United States?

- What prominent Montreal office building stored most of Britain’s wealth during World War II?

- Who was the first Montreal-based singer -- more than 100 years before Céline Dion -- to become an international superstar?

These are just a few of the intriguing questions answered in BEYOND THE MOUNTAIN: True Tales About Montreal. This book reveals some of the most interesting stories and lesser-known facts about this great city in a "story behind the answer" format, accompanied with rarely seen photos and illustrations.

There is so much more to Montreal than its famous mountain, infamous politics, and labels like "The Stolen Car Capitol of Canada." BEYOND THE MOUNTAIN goes beyond the boundaries of Mount Royal in all directions to show a lesser known, yet a fascinating side of Montreal's history. It informs and entertains a new generation while evoking memories of the city’s past for older generations. But no matter who peruses its pages, BEYOND THE MOUNTAIN is guaranteed to make you exclaim: "Gee, I didn’t know that about Montreal" over and over again!

Stuart Nulman has written a wonderful book! As someone who loves and has often visited Montreal, it was exciting to learn not of the monuments but of the moments in Montreal history that has given this exciting city it's soul. To learn of Joe Beef alone is worth the price of the book. If you are planning a trip to Montreal I suggest you read "Beyond the Mountain" first. You'll arrive with a sense of the city not even natives usually have. And even if you are not, it's fascinating, not to mention fun, to discover the lives, loves, hates, quirks, and glories of another corner of the world.

Most people who've lived their lives in Montreal, or hail from there, may be familiar with certain key points in the city's past. In this book, however, Stuart Nulman takes the reader on a guided tour of both the major, and lesser known aspects of the city's history.
Far from being a dull historical narrative, the author displays a keen eye for providing detail without overloading the reader with extraneous information.
Entries are concise and the book moves along at a brisk pace. It's structure allows the reader to delve into select points in Montreal's history without necessarily having to read an entire chapter.
A great travel companion or for those who wish to buff up on Montreal's history or before engaging in a walking tour.

I bought this book hoping to find out new stories about Montreal but would have to agree with the reviewer who said it's mostly recycled and well-known stories. It's a meagre little book with not much in the way of illustrations or photos and each chapter starts with a question, probably meant as a sort of riddle, but then the answer is written right below. I found that irritating.
