About the Author
Robert Chambers Edwards (1860 1922) delighted discerning readers, scandalized prudes, and shattered the conventions of journalism with his series of selfpublished oneman newspapers. The first collection of Edwards writings in over twentyfive years, Irresponsible Freaks, Highball Guzzlers & Unabashed Grafters captures the man in his many, oft contradictory guises: harddrinking journalist, accomplished fiction writer, Prohibition booster, impish idoltoppler, freethinker, reluctant MLA and selfpromoter. An incendiary wordsmith, Bob Edwards pasquinades blend fact and fiction with mischievous abandon. The spiritual father of The Onion? At least. A Canadian original? Completely!
