In Max’s Folly, Bill Turpin leads us on a rollicking rollercoaster ride through Max’s non-linear “time-space continuum” as he pieces together the memories of a fully lived life now slipping away from him. The mood careens from laugh-out-loud funny, to bitingly satirical, to poignant, to moving — and back again. Max encounters — among others — a Canadian-accented Latin American mercenary, an ass-covering archbishop, a Montreal stripper-turned-real-estate mogul and a tabloid newspaper filled with so many surreal characters they could only have come out of real-life central casting. A marvellous debut novel from a major new talent. – Stephen Kimber, What Lies Across the Water: The Real Story of the Cuban Five
From the Back Cover
Fleeing assisted-living, Max time-jumps across a career that includes foreign correspondent, editor, and communications expert. Satirical, poignant, replete with wise-cracking characters -- a newsworthy debut novel.See all Product description
