Noel Ransome has a skill that is rare in Canadian journalism: to make an essay into a moment. Whether he's sharing stories from his own life, or breaking down the politics of the latest blockbuster comic book movie, his writing challenges readers to stop and reckon with the subject. His own reckoning is so personal and from-the-heart, I feel like I'm on the same journey every time I edit his work.
