Terry has won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, as well as being selected as the winner of CBC’s Canada Reads 2011. This event is sure to be a fun time – and it is rather timely with a federal election looming.
The Best Laid Plans is the winner of this year’s CBC Canada Reads contest. The book is about a burnt-out political aide who quits just before an election, but is forced to run a hopeless campaign on the way out. He makes a deal a crusty old Scot, Angus McLintock, an engineering professor who will do anything to avoid teaching English to engineers – to let his name stand in the election. A great scandal blows away his opponent, and to their horror, Angus is elected. He decides to see what good an honest M.P., who doesn’t care about being re-elected, can do in Parliament. The results are hilarious – with chess, a hovercraft, and the love of a good woman thrown in, this very funny book has something for everyone.
