In 1998, he received the Toronto Arts Award for writing.

Review:

Praise for The Spanish Doctor

“A book whose pages demand to be turned.”

?Alberto Manguel, Quill & Quire

“Remarkable in its intellectual grasp of human dilemma, remarkable in its evocation of the erotic texture of medieval surface.”

?The Canadian Forum

Praise for Matt Cohen

Elizabeth and After constantly surprises with its compassion and generosity, and its luminous appreciation of landscape and community.”

?Governor General’s Award Juror’s Citation

“A mature, funny, engaging... wonderful novel... that nails you to the chair cushions (or bed pillows) from start to finish.”

?The Edmonton Journal (on Elizabeth and After)

“A novel with the power to remind readers why they read fiction in the first place... It comes at age-old sorrow and joys from a new angle, and so serves as a reminder that the most astonishing of miracles is simply to be alive.”

?Maclean’s (on Elizabeth and After)

“Matt was a consummate writer. I don’t know of anyone who lived a commitment to the process of writing more thoroughly and with more intensity than he did.”

?Margaret Atwood

“[Cohen’s] characters?are strong and freestanding-and their utterances?have potency, wit, and inherent energy.”

?Kirkus Reviews (on Emotional Arithmetic)

Emotional Arithmetic is a must for anyone who wants to face off with the 20th century.”

?Quill and Quire
