This is an original, wild, and often funny story about Randy Gogarty. He is a free spirit, full of lust, full of himself. He sets out for Elk Brain, Saskatchewan, intent on setting the newspaper world ablaze. But it is he who goes up in flames. Confused by idealism and loyalties, he gets fired and then tries to survive a prairie winter through hard drinking, car trips across wide open empty spaces, and traveling with his beloved. And as is sardonically apropos, Randy suffers salvation in a most unexpected way.

M.T. Kelly’s I Do Remember the Fall is a gem from the past, and a window on a dramatically less politically correct era. As this new edition proves, it’s as readable, contemporary and outrageously funny as it was when first published in 1977. According to the Vancouver Sun, Kelly “…never writes a boring sentence…” This is certainly true in this story, a series of sublime ruminations told in an inimitable style – full of wonder and life and love, poignant insights, and irrepressible humor. No reader will forget this satirical, desperate, beautiful fiction debut.
