A funny and fascinating tour de force from Will Ferguson, three-time winner of the Leacock Medal for Humour.

Ferguson has spent years wandering and musing across Canada and beyond. Canadian Pie includes his reflections on the lost art of crank calls, tips on how to get someone to pick blueberries out of a muffin for you, and lessons of a mini-bar ninja. There are “lost” radio scripts of a Maritime soap opera, a roundup of big objects beside the highway, and an ode to young love in Old Quebec. Read about his encounter with an aging kamikaze pilot, listen in on an interview with a pair of Canadian brothers playing semi-pro hockey in Japan, gain an appreciation of the unintentional beauty of New Brunswick’s covered bridges, learn how to pick up women (or not), join a journey on the rainforest coast of Vancouver Island, take a trip to PEI in search of someone—anyone—who will criticize Almighty Anne, and much more.

A wide ranging collection of essays ranging from humorous to romantic to poignant. While most of the book is about Canada and its foibles and its romance, the final section is about Ferguson's years in Japan. Ferguson writes in an easy to read light hearted style that made this an extremely enjoyable book.

Are you Canadian and do you like to laugh? Please read this then. I love Will Ferguson and his honest and funny writing. This book covers Canada and beyond. There is a little repetition from other books if you've read anything else by Will, but it's good repetition. Awesome!
