1995 Winner of the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour, this hilarious view of the 90s pokes fun at fat cats, bureaucrats, sign laws, snowstorms, second-hand steak fumes, quiet Canadians, noisy Americans, and other fax of Canadian life.
Perfect toilet reading though you will likely take it with you back to your easy chair. Freed is a gifted commentator. You really can't go wrong with this book if you are Canadian. His is an ironic fist in a velvet glove when writing on Quebec culture, the Canadian status quo and life (and death) in L.A.It would be easy to say he is Montreal's Dave Barry but he may be the only Canadian who is currently writing legitimately funny stuff. Allan Fotheringham in MacLean's (who calls himself Dr. Foth), John/Joey Slinger in the Toronto Star (or just "Slinger"), another dude in Macleans (who is so hopeless I cannot remember his name) -- these guys don't cut it but Freed does.
