In his fourth novel, winner of the 2011 Canada Reads competition and "CanLit''s crowned king of chuckles" (Telegraph-Journal) Terry Fallis''s sharp, funny wit takes readers into the world of identity, inheritance, and belonging, begging the question: What''s in a name?

There''s something bigger, something that has been haunting him his whole life, something that he''ll never be able to shake. Meet Earnest Hemmingway.
