PRAISE for William Gough's Books:
"Gough’s writing is...poignant, spare, with the strength and subtlety of a fine woodcut..." E. Annie Proulx/

Maud’s House…is a literary compliment paid to a people whose richest bounty, next to the sea, is the gift of language. It is also a detailed snapshot of a lost era, lovingly developed in the darkroom of the writer’s memory. …it’s clear that the richness of language as it is spoken in Newfoundland is in Gough’s literary blood.”
Michael Harris, The Globe and Mail

“A good novel does something which happens only rarely in our day-to-day perceptions; It sets down what can happen in an instant of time.
“Maud’s House is a wonderful book, a treat to read, and one of the best books I’ve read this year, period…”
Peter Gard, The Evening Telegram
