“Steven W. Beattie … may be the most cantankerous book blogger on the Internet. He may also be the smartest.” – CBC Books
“One of Canada’s last great critics.” – Chad Pelley, Salty Ink
“In an age when mainstream and online books coverage has increasingly skewed toward the short, the punchy, and the glib, Steven Beattie, creator and curator of the literary blog That Shakespearean Rag, has remained defiantly thoughtful, critical, and … literary. He uses big words occasionally. He expects his readers to have read a book or two in their pasts. He’s even critical of the way other media cover books. Don’t be afraid: his blog is a great read.” – Torontoist
That Shakespearean Rag is conceived, written, and managed by Steven W. Beattie.
