The Admen Move on Lhasa

“Brilliantly written essays… Heighton performs the essayist's role with sensitivity, depth and passion.”
Edmonton Journal

The Admen Move on Lhasa, essays, published by the House of Anansi Press, 1997

“A passionate, generous-spirited, earnest collection of essays, exuberantly out of step with academic orthodoxy, blessedly anachronistic… If his rhetoric sometimes topples over… that is a small price to pay to witness an energetic intellect grappling with problems that should engage us all.”
Essays on Canadian Writing

“He writes, vividly and poignantly, about the decline of a humanistic culture, and its replacement by one of commercialism and sterility.” —Hamilton Spectator

“Passionate in its pleas, honest in its beliefs, and noble in its sentiments.” —Quill & Quire

“The prose is… elegantly turned… the best of these articles [is] a sharp reading of the cultural meaning of Quentin Tarantino's Reservoir Dogs.” —Globe & Mail

“Heighton can write very well… His account of a visit to… Vimy Ridge is utterly compelling, as are [the] very personal pieces about friends who have died.” —Montreal Gazette
