Praise

“Who knew subject matter so (literally) uncomfortable could be so much damn fun? Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall is the perfect endearingly flawed and funny narrator to take us on this wild, world-wide adventure into the history of our painful mornings after. Whether he’s piloting a fighter plane in Vegas, chatting with a blacksmith in Devon, cheating death in the desert and the alps, or attempting 12 pints in 12 pubs, his daring, wit and insight never disappoint — all with, it would seem, a blazing hangover. Part science, part folklore, part string of the author’s very bad ideas with good intentions, Hungover is a highly knowledgeable and ridiculously enjoyable ride.”  —Stacey May Fowles, author of Baseball Life Advice
 
“Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall has risked life and liver to write this book, a perilous trip into many mornings after—historical, cinematic, literary, and of course his own. That’s the entertaining part. As to whether Bishop-Stall has, in fact, invented a hangover remedy that actually works? I live in hope.” —Adam Rogers, author of Proof: The Science of Booze
 
“It takes a writer as skilled as Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall to write a rip-roaring adventure story about the morning after. Thoroughly researched, rich in history and humour, against all odds, Hungover makes you wish you were there. —Tabatha Southey
 
“Shaughnessy Bishop-Stall invests health, wealth and well-being in a wild Dionysian quest for a viable hangover cure. In the end he gets more than one, and we do, too.” —Linden Macintyre, Scotiabank Giller Prize-winning author


Praise for Down To This:


“Nothing short of a masterpiece.” —National Post

“Some writers go to great lengths to write a book. They climb Mount Everest, follow armies into war zones, go undercover with a professional sports team or travel around the world on a motorbike…Shaugnesy Bishop-Stall has more guts than any of those writers.” —Edmonton Journal

“Intensely perceptive, Bishop-Stall tumbles heartbreak with hilarity, outrageous despair with shimmering hope.” —Calgary Herald
