Will Ferguson''s bestselling debut novel-formerly known as Generica-is now an international publishing sensation, attracting kudos from critics and readers in Canada, the U.S. and the U.K. Ferguson is well known for his non-fiction hits such as How To Be Canadian, but here he turns his hand to fiction-with hilarious results.

Edwin de Valu, an overworked editor at Panderic Press, is in trouble. The weekly editorial meeting isn''t going well and he needs a hit for the upcoming fall season. In desperation he presents a previously rejected self-help manuscript, "What I Learned On The Mountain," by Tupak Soiree.

Much to Edwin''s chagrin, the project is accepted, and soon becomes the number-one bestseller of all time. But can this self-help book be the real thing? Dismayed by the plague of happiness that ensues, Edwin attempts to get to the bottom of the mysteries of Tupak Soiree and the book he has unleashed on our unsuspecting world.
