Finalist, City of Vancouver Book Award
Monday Night Man is a back alley view of East Vancouver netherworlds. Horst Nunn, Ray Bunce, and Boyle Rupp are a trio of middle-aged, underemployed, intelligent “plungers” striving for redemption through humour and long shots at the track.
Praise for Monday Night Man:
"These stories . . . combine the flavours of Dickens and Charles Bukowski, with a good hit of The Three Stooges thrown in." (Bruce Serafin, founder, Vancouver Review)
"Buday is a careful stylist; his language is clean and carefully plotted, his dialogue quick and convincing." (Kevin Connolly, Paragraph)
