In this collection of hilarious essays, Edward Riche
stretches his satiric muscles to lambaste just about anything that crosses his
field of vision. Newfoundland writes a heartfelt letter Canada, offering to
console mainland frustrations over a pint. The Canadian government brainstorms
to find which national symbol it can ruin next. And a concerned citizen writes
a scathing critique of The Muskrat Falls Festival of the Arts, now hundreds of
dollars over budget.
In Bag of Hammers Riche reminds us just how enlivening and
enlightening satire can be, and how much we need it right now.
