Description

In late 2014, in a commanding and condemning voice that brooked no argument, a devastating edict was handed down from high up on CanLit Mountain: “It seems to me that laughter is too easy a way to face the 'wilderness of this world'; you can too easily laugh yourself past the difficulties. Laughter is not a way to understand; it is, basically, a method of elusion.” These measured words of Governor General’s Award-winning novelist Rudy Wiebe were intended to once and for all settle the debate as to where “comedy” should be placed on the scale of literary importance: beneath the righteous boot heels of true Canadian literati. This is a collection of fiction and poetry, genres and styles, and many of the angles humor may take.
