This is what people are saying about The Day They Shot Reveen – Stories from a PEI small town:
CBC Radio interview with Matt Rainnie, May 12, 2016.http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/prince-edward-island/programs/islandmorning/storytelling-is-in-his-dennis-king-s-genes-1.3576833
“I was thrilled to hear Dennis was putting together a book of stories. I have known the King family for a long time and Dennis comes by his talents honestly. His uncle Donald was a gifted storyteller, writer and poet. Only the late, great Urban Carmichael, for possessing a quick wit and an ability to tell a tale, rivals Dennis’ father, the legendary Lionel. This book is a must-read for me.”
“Dennis King is an expert storyteller who unabashedly celebrates the personalities and quirks of the people who surrounded him as a child. Growing up in Georgetown, PEI it would be easy to feel the grass is always greener on the other side. While the economy often sagged and industries came and went, the people of this hardscrabble town never lost their pride in place. If you were born there, you will always call it home. King’s stories, some perhaps embellished for effect, revel in the memories made during a simpler time, before the Internet and video games. His collection of stories is belly laugh funny. Most importantly it is a love story to a town that remains unique to this day.”
