"Stephen Henighan is a persistent thorn in the side of the Canadian literary establishment, but also a fearless and perceptive observer of our culture." --Quill & Quire
"He not only kills sacred cows, but he tortures them first." —University of Toronto Quarterly
R. U. Singh has always known he is destined to live the life of an English country squire. After a few false starts, in Bombay, Thunder Bay, and Toronto, he settles into a comfortable existence as a small-town Ontario lawyer, much solicited for the diversity he lends committees and conclaves. But—lest he forget—he is accepted only at the whim of his woman in white, a commanding university administrator, and by her whim can also fall. Mr. Singh Among the Fugitives sends up the multicultural aspirations of Canadian identity, pokes fun at our glitterati, and, tongue firmly in cheek, issues a warning: be careful who you pretend to be.
