Praise for Tell Me Why Nights Are Lonesome:

“ Westmount author Muriel Gold tells the love story of a Jewish Montreal family over three generations set against the backdrop of a developing Montreal and world events. Gold has skilfully woven autobiography and memoir to create a compelling tale that dates from the turn of the last century to the present.”  The Westmount Examiner

“...Gold provides a uniquely informed perspective on post-First World War Jewish immigration to Canada, as her father was the first director of the Jewish Immigrant Aid Society in Montreal. Academically respectable, this book makes an important contribution to Canadian Jewish Studies.”   The Montreal Gazette

“...History is always a backdrop in their relationship. Bernard astutely observes World War I, the Russian Revolution (he remained attached to communism) and the hopes for a Jewish homeland in Palestine after the Balfour Declaration. Both are interested in the suffragette movement (one of Dora’s sisters is an early feminist) and watch the devastation of the 1918 flu epidemic.”
The Canadian Jewish News

“The story of Dora and Bernard offers a revealing glimpse of life in Canada during the turbulent period from the early 1900s to the late 1950s......Big events unfolded - the work of Walter Scott, first Premier of Saskatchewan, the Canadian debate about conscription, the Halifax explosion, the Spanish flu, the Great Depression, World War II, concentration camps, post-war prosperity - but in the forefront was love, marriage, birth, death, tradition, celebration, a new generation holding fast to their roots. That’s the real story of the times and Muriel Gold has captured it.”
Joan Eyolfson Cadham, Saskatchewan

“An amalgam of many elements. It is a love story. It is a life story, both of individuals and of three generations of one family. It is a chronicle of Jewish life in Montreal, with fascinating insights into Jewish life in the first 50 years of the twentieth century. Above all, it is a story told with love and respect. It will hold your interest from the first sentence to the last.”
