Bag of HammersBook - 2017
There are the timeless questions that must be answered: Where is the most boring town in Eastern Canada? How can a government most efficiently mismanage prosperity? Are all of our contemporary psychoses a direct result of the motion-picture montage? As the Newfoundland saying goes, that's "as foolish as a bag of hammers." And in this collection of hilariously creative essays, critically acclaimed writer Edward Riche stretches his satiric muscles to lambaste just about anything that crosses his field of vision. Newfoundland writes a heartfelt letter to Canada, offering to console mainland anger over a pint. The Canadian government brainstorms to find the national symbol it can ruin next. If you think the world is going crazy, Riche will confirm your suspicions as he takes off the kid gloves and trades them for a Bag of Hammers.
