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.
