“Ian Hunter’s That Time of Year offers what only a collection of short essays can: a galaxy of crisply individual points of light, spiralling into something much larger. For years, Hunter has been our best informed observer in the legal and quasi-legal dimensions of Canada’s descent into the ‘tyranny of the fatuous’ As this book reminds, he was there, monitoring every stage, often in person. But as it also shows, Hunter is no narrow lawyer. He looks consistently beyond the immediate event, and his literary and cultural interests are genuinely broad. He has a memorable prose voice, and the fine whimsy that invariably betokens a sharp poetical mind. The book embodies the very best qualities to which the ‘politically correct’ are allergic, and is never ranting. There is also a background religious striving, which lifts these pieces quite of the time and circumstances that occasioned them. To those who still aspire to civilization, here is something that not only defends, but embodies the wisdom of our Christian heritage. And on top of that, it is entertaining.” ~ David Warren, Canadian columnist, The Ottawa Citizen
