Format: Hardcover
The Book of Stanley is Canadian satire. It's not British and definitely not American. It's perfectly Canadian.

Stan is just a man, and like any man, he wonders about his place in the world. What we're doing here and if we deserve our fate. His godly powers put him in the position to contemplate this obsessively.

I've been telling people that The Book of Stanley is "Gabriel Garcia Marquez meets Michael Winter."
