about

Funny in a light-hearted, satirical way, Joe Campbell’ s essays do not miss any of his social targets. Though his subjects are as Canadian as a boy’ s dream to play in the NHL, or as universal as music, he always writes with a gently urbane edge showing the potential pitfalls and hilarity of clichd dreams and ritualized customs. Drawing from his experiences as a writer, editor, musician, tourist, failed athlete, husband, parent, and somewhat bemused observer trying to make sense of the contradictions of the world in which he lives, Campbell’ s essays will make even the stiffest lip quiver, and the most rigid conservative groan.
Jazz musician and writer, Joe Campbell got hooked on humour in high school and has had his essays published in Stitches, the Journal of Medical Humour, Gilbert, the Toronto Sun, the Calgary Herald, and The Globe & Mail. He lives in Saskatoon, Saskatchewan.
