From the Inside Flap:

For 30 years, actor Norman Bray has renounced all responsibility in the name of Art. But life is catching up to him. With his bank threatening foreclosure and the producers of Tiny Taxi dropping him as their cartoon lead, the 56-year-old braggart is forced to confront his most cherished self-delusions. He may even have to get a real job. Complicating matters further, his stepdaughter, Amy, has been perusing her dead mother's journals and wants to know what really happened on the opening night of Man of La Mancha.

A finalist for the Governor General's Award and the Commonwealth Writers Prize, Norman Bray in the Performance of His Life is a brilliant black comedy about a man on a collision course with himself.

About the Author:

Before turning to writing fiction, Trevor Cole was best known as an award-winning magazine journalist. After a stint as a senior writer at the Globe and Mail's Report on Business Magazine, he wrote a satirical column for Canadian Business which became a notorious irritant to many of Canada's prominent business leaders. He is now a regular contributor to Toronto Life and Report on Business Magazine. In 2005, he garnered six National Magazine Award nominations -- more than any other writer in Canada.

Calgary-based actor David LeReaney has been acting, directing and teaching since 1979, and has appeared in over 160 plays at regional theatres across western Canada. In 1993, he received the Best Actor AMPIA Award for his performance in the film The Life History of the African Elephant, and in 2000 he was honoured with the Harry and Martha Cohen Award for his contribution to Calgary theatre. His film credits include Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, Jake and the Kid, After the Harvest (with Sam Shepherd) and Ratrace (with John Cleese).
