A brilliant follow-up to the Stephen Leacock Award-winner
The Best Laid Plans, this deeply funny satire
continues the story of Honest Angus McLintock, an amateur
politician who dares to do the unthinkable: tell the truth.
Just when Daniel Addison thinks he can escape his job as a
political aide, Angus McLintock, the no-hope candidate he helped
into Parliament, throws icy cold water over his plans. Angus has
just brought down the government with a deciding vote. Now the
crusty Scot wants Daniel to manage his next campaign.
Soon Daniel is helping Angus fight an uphill battle against
"Flamethrower" Fox, a Conservative notorious for his dirty tactics.
Together they decide to take "The High Road" and - against all
odds - turn the race into a nail-biter with hilarious ups and
downs, cookie-throwing seniors, and even a Watergate-style
break-in. But that''s only the beginning. Add a political storm in
the capital and a side-splitting visit from the U.S. President and
his alcoholic wife, and Terry Fallis''s second novel is a wildly
entertaining read full of deft political satire and laugh-out-loud
