About the Author

Robert Chambers Edwards (1860 — 1922) delighted discerning readers, scandalized prudes, and shattered the conventions of journalism with his series of self—published one—man newspapers. The first collection of Edward’s writings in over twenty—five years, Irresponsible Freaks, Highball Guzzlers & Unabashed Grafters captures the man in his many, oft contradictory guises: hard—drinking journalist, accomplished fiction writer, Prohibition booster, impish idol—toppler, free—thinker, reluctant MLA and self—promoter. An incendiary wordsmith, Bob Edward’s pasquinades blend fact and fiction with mischievous abandon. The spiritual father of The Onion? At least. A Canadian original? Completely!
