Product description

Review

"Hunt gives us a white world ruled by bomb-droppers, poor dressers...unfeeling non-communicators and perpetrators of other cultural enormities. Often quite funny, as in lists of the 10 whitest songs (Whiter Shade of Pale), movies (Fargo) and, of course, books." (Globe & Mail)

"Hunt does a reasonably entertaining job of covering the white waterfront, and some of his zingers are spot on...The White Guy adds up to a funny-but-serious portrait of the species, and enables the rest of us to run for cover or attempt to change the world, or both." (Quill & Quire)

"Hunt's book is more personal than Landers [Stuff White People Like], documenting his whiteness through his childhood and adolescence in Winnipeg, various career moves and eventual marriage to a US-born actress. He talks about having an identity crisis in his 20s when a successful lawyer girlfriend out-earned him, and pinpoints his increasing interest in his lawn as a true sign of his aging white man-ness." (CBC.ca)
