Based loosely on the author’s own life, this is the fictionalized account of the experiences of a man growing up in Canada in the ‘60s, with all of the complications, Playboy magazines, and bell-bottom jeans that implies. Ordinary takes the reader on a satirical, impactful, and unflinching journey through a life that is anything but ordinary.
From childhood adventures with porcupines and first erections to scams and pranks as a first-responder with a fire-fighting unit, this clever, darkly humorous book is an "escape plan" to hope, and a life-line for those struggling to be psychologically healthy. Readers will see how much life, love, and joy there is in even the most ordinary life.
Each of us has our own story to tell, even if we’ve forgotten for a time what that story is. Even the most common of lives are replete with passion, adventure, and excitement.
