Excerpt from the title story "Bliss", about the late Bliss Comeau and his years as a musician in Ontario:

"I was innocent, man, we all were. Small town guys. We’d never smoked dope, we didn’t even drink that much, just a few beers maybe once or twice a week. We didn’t know anything. I mean, we didn’t know anything. We were in Toronto six months before we knew where Yonge Street was. We lived in Scarsdale, that’s a suburb, and we never went anywhere, except the time we went to play at a resort..."

Raymond Fraser is a natural story teller. His talent with narrative is second to none in this country.
—Michael O. Nowlan, Daily Gleaner

"I've had the pleasure of reading five of Raymond Fraser's books over the past few years. A great storyteller and one of the country's truly under-appreciated natural resources."
—Lawrence Creaghan, The Write Stuff
