Praise

Finalist for the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour

“A rollicking good ride. Funny one moment, serious the next, always compelling: a reminder that we can all dream.” —Marc Garneau, Member of Parliament and Canada’s first astronaut

“Fallis displays formidable chops when it comes to narrative pacing, wrangling subplots, balancing comedy and pathos.” —The Globe and Mail

“[Terry Fallis has] done it again. What a great read!” —Waterloo Record

“[A] fascinating story of the divergence of Canadian and American values, the importance of family, unlikely friendship, second chances, ageism, a love of Sherlock Holmes, insight into the awe-inspiring world of space travel, and the importance of using your head but following your heart.” —Winnipeg Free Press

“Not too many Canucks have ventured to write humorous books. There is Stephen Leacock, of course. And Robertson Davies cranked out a couple. . . . Count Terry Fallis among the few to achieve success at the form.” —Ottawa Citizen
