What they say

Wickedly funny with a king-sized heart. How does this guy always manage to get it right?
–– Douglas Coupland.

Rarely has political reality in Canada so consistently outdone fiction. Who needs editorial cartoonists, you might ask, at a time when actual politicians are so keen on doing all the work for them? Look to this collection for the answer. It will make you wonder whether to laugh or cry at the times we live in. It will also almost make it worthwhile to have endured the past three years.
–– Chantal Hébert, from the Introduction
