“Newfoundland is both a simple place and a complex one. The people are warm and friendly but their humour is sharp and biting. Newfoundland is always walking the line between prosperity and poverty. The people who live here are forced to go away for work, but they would never leave. This place is not black and white. It is as grey as the sky above it, the water around it, and the fog that links the two. It takes and it gives, just like the surrounding ocean. Sink or swim: it will make of you what it wants.”
Mark Critch, Son of a Critch: A Childish Newfoundland Memoir

“I couldn’t play cello and I sucked at math. The world was as it should be.”
Mark Critch, Son of a Critch: A Childish Newfoundland Memoir

“My new material was working well and I had about a minute left when—right in the middle of my final set-up—the rocket alarm went off for a second time. I couldn’t believe this was happening. I was being heckled by the Taliban.”
Mark Critch, An Embarrassment of Critch's: Immature Stories From My Grown-Up Life
