Turns out, this book is less “fun insane romp through zesty prose and reactionary 70s politics” and more “bordering on hate speech” with brief interludes of incredibly detailed bus routes and descriptions of … driving in Buffalo. Safe to say this book will neither grow on you nor show you anything you particularly want to see, but the episode finds some decent veins to work on.
NOTE 2: We bought our copies used, and got the cover you see above. Apparently, and upsettingly, there are new copies available (Clsn was wrong AGAIN!), which you should absolutely avoid, but which do have a cover that really plays up the Quebec and really plays down anything having to do with the book.
