Overview

Since winning the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour in 2008 for his first novel, The Best Laid Plans, Terry Fallis has been celebrated as one of Canada's new humour writers, compared to the likes of Robertson Davies and Leacock himself. In this new eBook collection, Fallis's three novels -- The Best Laid Plans (also the 2011 Canada Readers winner), The High Road, and Up and Down (both shortlisted for the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour) -- are packaged together for the first time.

In The Best Laid Plans and The High Road, follow Daniel Addison navigate Parliament Hill as the political aide to Angus McLintock, the no-hope candidate he helped into government. Political storms, visiting dignitaries, surprise elections, Watergate-style break-ins -- these deftly written political satires will have readers laughing out loud.
In Up and Down, Fallis takes readers from Parliament Hill to the world of corporate politics, where David Stewart's first day on the job -- and quick thinking -- swiftly lands him on an out-of-this world project: a revitalization of North America's interest in the space program. What follows is a clever and satirical, thoughtful and affecting story rife with classic U.S.-Canadian misunderstandings and hysterical plot twists.
