This newest collection of poems takes us againon the kind of roads only McFadden can travel -- roads where the unusual i s commonplace and the commonplace becomes the unusual. By plane, train, car, bus, food, and by thumb, McFadden moves through Canada, and even time-loops into ancient China and Egypt, writing about people and things that seem insignifiant but twist strangely into matters of moment. Poking fun at the famous, giving free rein t fantasy, reflecting on people and places, McFadden remains very much his own man, and, through his writing, becomes very much everyone's man." - from the rear cover.
