Rated 5 out of 5 by from A must read. I'll start off by saying anything written by the late and great Timothy Findley is worth reading in Canadian literature. Of all the books written by this amazing author, Last of the Crazy People is in my opinion is best. The characters are perfect yet completely dysfunctional and broken but its one of those novels that gets into your mind and stays with you for days after you finish reading. I highly recommend this and every other book by Timothy Findley.
