A perfect cottage-warming gift. Boomer lit. Sure to resonate with paddlers everywhere.
You ever have a neighbour whose behaviour is so mind-bogglingly inconsiderate and so suicide-inducingly annoying that you just want to ask him, in a polite Canadian way, to please stop? TurboJetslams isn't like that. Jass Richards' new novel, TurboJetslams: Proof #29 of the Non-Existence of God, tells the tale of one person's pathetic and hilarious attempts to single-handedly stop the destruction of a little piece of beautiful Canadian wilderness by the increasing numbers of idiots who couldn't care less.
“Extraordinarily well written with wit, wisdom, and laugh-out-loud ironic recognition, "TurboJetslams: Proof #29 of the Non-Existence of God" is a highly entertaining and a riveting read that will linger on in the mind and memory long after the little book itself has been finished and set back upon the shelf (or shoved into the hands of friends with an insistence that they drop everything else and read it!). Highly recommended for community library collections.” Midwest Book Review

About the Author
Jass Richards has a Master's degree in Philosophy and used to be a stand-up comic. Now she's more of a sprawled-on-the-couch comic.
Despite these attributes, she has received several Arts Council grants.
In addition to her Rev and Dylan series (The Road Trip Dialogues, The Blasphemy Tour, License to Do That, and The ReGenderApp), which has reportedly made at least one person snort root beer out her nose, she has written This Will Not Look Good on My Resume (‘nuff said), followed by its sequel Dogs Just Wanna Have Fun (ditto). She has also written the perfect cottage-warming gift, TurboJetslams: Proof #29 of the Non-Existence of God. Oddly enough, that one and License to Do That have made it to goodreads' list of "Fiction Books That Opened Your Eyes To A Social or Political Issue." Another stand-alone novel, A Philosopher, A Psychologist, and an Extraterrestrial Walk into a Chocolate Bar, will delight radfem readers everywhere. Excerpts from her several books have appeared in The Cynic Online Magazine, in Contemporary Monologues for Young Women (vol.3) and 222 More Comedy Monologues, and on Erma Bombeck’s humor website. Her one-woman play Substitute Teacher from Hell received its premiere performance by Ghost Monkey Productions in Winnipeg.
