Product Details


“If you loved the show, you’ll love this book.”
—Ruth-Ellen Soles, communications consultant and former CBC spokesperson

“Finlay’s ready sense of humour and the rich trove of wacky material in the show’s archives have combined to great comic effect.”
Edmonton Journal

“More than a gripping condensation of Finlay’s favourite interviews and reminiscences. It’s also an enlightening historical document, a testament to her appetite for a great yarn and evidence of her sharp wit and keen journalistic sensibilities.”
Toronto Star
