About the Author

TERRY FALLIS grew up in Toronto and went to McMaster University. Drawn to politics at an early age, he worked for Cabinet Ministers both at Queen’s Park and in Ottawa. His first book, The Best Laid Plans, began as a podcast, then was self-published, won the Stephen Leacock Award for Humour, was re-published to great reviews by McClelland & Stewart, and was selected the 2011 winner of CBC’s Canada Reads competition. He lives in Toronto with his wife and two children and blogs about his writing life at www.terryfallis.com.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“One of CanLit’s crowned king of chuckles, Terry Fallis hits stratospheric heights with his latest well-balanced and unpredictable satire.”
Telegraph-Journal
 
“Not too many Canucks have ventured to write humorous books. There is Stephen Leacock, of course. And Robertson Davies cranked out a couple . . . Count Terry Fallis among the few to achieve success at the form.”
Ottawa Citizen

"Gently satirical and intelligently frothy, Up and Down achieves a delightful weightlessness as transporting as the space voyage it deals with."
—Andrew Pyper, author of The Guardians

"A rollicking good ride. Funny one moment, serious the next, always compelling: a reminder that we can all dream."
—Marc Garneau, Canada's first astronaut, Member of Parliament
