About the Author

Victoria Branden lives in fear of being sued by Hollinger Inc.; the Estate of Elizabeth Smart (and all academics who have earned a living promoting this author); as well as disgruntled nouveau riche every-where, whose secrets have been exposed.

Victoria Branden herewith presents her sixth book. Earlier lunacies: Mrs. Job and Flitterin' Judas, novels; In Defence of Plain English, non-fiction; and two books (Understanding Ghosts and Give Up the Ghost) enunciating a non-occultist theory of the paranormal. Her articles and short stories have appeared in The Atlantic Monthly, Chatelaine, Saturday Night, Canadian Forum, New Horizons, Homemaker's, and many others. For years she wrote short stories and plays for the CBC which have won a variety of awards and honours. Ms. Branden attended the University of Alberta and the University of Toronto and studied a wide range of organizations investigating the paranormal. She has worked in publishing, journalism, academia, lifeguarding, and strawberry-picking. She lives in Waterdown, Ontario, with her dog and several drop-in cats.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

The author sweetens her medicine with broad parody, perhaps to disarm us via belly laughs. There is lots to hoot about in these pages...[This] tongue-in-cheek how-to guide offers enough options to satisfy absolute gluttons for snobbery.
