Perth Chapter:
One on One
with Terry Fallis

"Not too many Canucks have ventured to write humorous books. There is Stephen Leacock, of course. And Robertson Davies cranked out a couple... Count Terry Fallis among the few to achieve success at the form.

Join us for an unforgettable evening with  Terry Fallis , winner of the 2011 Canada Reads competition and "CanLit's crowned king of chuckles." ( Telegraph-Journal


In his fourth novel, No Relation, Terry's sharp wit takes readers into the world of identity, inheritance, and belonging, begging the question: What's in a name?   

This is the story of a young copywriter in New York City. He's worked at the same agency for fifteen years, and with a recent promotion under his belt, life is good. Then, one morning this copywriter finds himself unceremoniously fired from his job, and after he catches his live-in girlfriend moving out of their apartment a couple hours later, he's also single. Believe it or not, these aren't the biggest problems in this copywriter's life. There's something bigger, something that has been haunting him his whole life, something that he'll never be able to shake. Meet Earnest Hemmingway. 

What's in a name? Well, if you share your moniker with the likes of some of the most revered, infamous, and sometimes dreaded names in history, plenty. This is Earnest's lifelong plight, but something more recent is on his plate: His father is pressuring him to come home and play an active role in running the family clothing business. And as a complex familial battle plays out, Earnest's inherited name leads him in unexpected directions. Wry, clever, and utterly engaging,  No Relation  is Terry Fallis at the top of his form.
