About this title

Synopsis:

This time round, Arthur Black turns his critical eye and warped funny bone to the world beyond Salt Spring Island, lambasting the amateur ballplayer who sued because the sun was in his eyes, the craze for blood sports and our anachronistic fetish for suits and ties. Yet, compassion is in the air too, with Black rehabilitating one of the most ineffective US presidents, Jimmy Carter, into the greatest, and finding a shred of respect for Conrad Black (no relation), British lord, newspaper mogul and jailbird. Then there was the time Black found himself sleeping in Corsica between a woman and her husband. Needless to say, it was . . . complicated.

About the Author:

Arthur Black is one of Canada's best-known humorists, and one of only two living writers to have won the Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour three times. A former host of the CBC radio program, Basic Black, and the author of a syndicated newspaper column, Black is now permanently transplanted to Salt Spring Island, BC.
