About this title

Synopsis:

This book--a sequel to Frog Fables and Beaver Tales--tells the story of the privileged, contentious animals who inhabit the great northern Swamp of the Beavers and the Frogs.

This incisive and sharply-rendered satire of Canadian politics and media in the mid-1970s will bring to mind a host of familiar faces--Pierre Trudeau, Rene Levesque, Pierre Berton, Adrienne Clarkson, Marshall MacLuhan--subtly adapted, er, evolved, to survive in the Swamp. The Swamp is contested ground, always vulnerable to the Eagles from the south, threatened by the Frogs' ardent desire to declare independence from the Beavers.

The Day of the Glorious Revolution is a hilarious souvenir of a pariticularly wild time in Canada's political life.
