Bill Rowe, author of the critically acclaimed political drama Danny Williams: The War with Ottawa (Globe and Mail Bestseller, 2010), is back in fighting form and ready to throw a few more punches at the local, national, and world leaders who fill our lives with endless amusement and exasperation. Rowe’s newspaper columns, written between 2005 and 2007 and collected here for the first time under one cover, are a tour de force that challenge the reader to take on political lightweights and heavyweights alike, societal ills at home and abroad, and always question motives and demand answers from those in power.
Peppered with the same dry wit and humour that propelled this author onto a national stage, this collection is, quite simply, a must-read.
