For most of the past 20 years, Terry Fallis has been my business partner – first at Hill and Knowlton and since 1995, at Thornley Fallis.
Terry and his novel are keeping some pretty impressive company. The other short-listed novels and authors are: Douglas Coupland The Gum Thief, Will Ferguson (Spanish Fly), Scott Gardiner (King John of Canada) and Ron Wood (And God Created Manyberries.) Past winners of the award include: Robertson Davies, Earle Birney, Pierre Berton, Harry Boyle, George Bain, Richard J. Needham, Max Ferguson, Farley Mowat, Mordecai Richler, Stuart McLean, and W.O. Mitchell.
I read the book when Terry published it and I have to say it kept me chuckling well into the evening.
It just goes to show that you will meet some of the most interesting (and funny) people at a public relations firm.
