Was It Good For You?

Terry Mosher (Aislin)

July 2012

Was It Good For You? It was really good for Aislin! This a collection comprises Aislin’s favourites drawn over the last three years. It is his 45th book. He is aiming for fifty.  Montreal’s infrastructure is crumbling at a faster rate than any city in North America – and there lurks Aislin amongst the thousands of orange construction cones, sketchbook in hand. Nationalism in Quebec would appear to be going through death throes while Aislin watches, just as he has since the beginning, pencil at the ready. Was It Good For You? Is a collection of Aislin’s favourites drawn over the last three years. It is his 45th book. He is aiming for 50. Foreword by Rick Mercer.

What they say

The name Aislin is derived from a Gaelic word meaning ‘dream’, but to many of the more dubious members of Canada’s political class, Aislin is something more of a nightmare. It’s a name that has become synonymous with biting political satire and razor-sharp wit. But more importantly he is Canada’s most celebrated shit disturber.
— Rick Mercer, from the Foreword to Was It Good For You?
