Not yet rated | write a review

A funny and fascinating tour de force from Will Ferguson, three-time winner of the Leacock Medal for Humour.

Ferguson has spent years wandering and musing across Canada and beyond. Canadian Pie includes his reflections on the lost art of crank calls, tips on how to get someone to pick blueberries out of a muffin for you, and lessons of a mini-bar ninja. There are "lost" radio scripts of a Maritime soap opera, a roundup of big objects beside the highway, and an ode to young love in Old Quebec. Read about his encounter with an aging kamikaze pilot, listen in on an interview with a pair of Canadian brothers playing semi-pro hockey in Japan, gain an appreciation of the unintentional beauty of New Brunswick''s covered bridges, learn how to pick up women (or not), join a journey on the rainforest coast of Vancouver Island, take a trip to PEI in search of someone-anyone-who will criticize Almighty Anne, and much more.

About the Author

Will Ferguson's debut novel, HappinessTM, has been published in thirty-three countries and twenty-six languages around the world. It was shortlisted for the Commonwealth Writers Prize (Canada and the Caribbean: First Novel) and went on to win the Leacock Medal for Humour and the Canadian Authors Association Award for Fiction. With his brother Ian, he wrote the wildly successful humour book How to Be a Canadian, which won the CBA Libris Award for Non-fiction Book of the Year. Will's travel memoir Beauty Tips from Moose Jaw was an immediate bestseller and won Ferguson his second Leacock Medal for Humour. His most recent book is Hitching Rides with Buddha: A Journey Across Japan. Will lives in Calgary with his wife and their two young sons.
