Product description


"The Shoe on the Roof is often laugh-out-loud funny despite its serious and tragic underpinnings. But it's also thought-provoking, occasionally violent and will likely stay with readers long after the last page is read."

-- "Calgary Herald"

"A powerful read.... Ferguson is a heavy-weight."-- "NOW Magazine"

"Absurdly funny."

-- "Quill & Quire"

"Another gem from this Giller Prize-winning author."-- "Canadian Living"

"Ferguson is a keen observer of landscapes and cityscapes, and has a brilliant ear for dialogue and accent.... you will never see those creative 419 emails in your inbox in quite the same way."-- "The Gazette (Montreal)"

"Heart-wrenching, fascinating, and scary .... An unflinching, ambitious work."-- "Toronto Star"

Praise for The Shoe on the Roof

"Ferguson is a skillful and original writer, and over all, the novel is full of life. . . . The Shoe on the Roof's lasting strength is in such sly jabs at the "alternative facts" and deep divisions we're now reckoning with, making it a tale for the times."

-- "The Globe and Mail"


"A deeply ironic, thoroughly engaged politico-philosophical thriller from a comic writer best known for winning a trio of Leacock Awards.... You won't sleep until you finish, and then rest won't come easily. Riveting. Provocative."-- "The Globe and Mail" --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.
