Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal for Humour 2016, Long-listed
From “master of fiction writing” (Montreal Gazette) Terry Fallis comes a new, humorous novel about how things are never always as they seem.

Overnight, Eve of Equality, a feminist blog, becomes a sensation—thanks to no other than a simple and unexpected, yet powerful, retweet. The blog is smart, thoughtful, and bold, brazenly taking on various injustices in the lives of women: gender streaming in the education system, the lack of women in government, the impact of Internet porn, and the power game of campus sexual assault, among others. But it’s the blogger Eve’s post on a new chain of high-end strip clubs opening up across the country that tips the scales—in the matter of hours, after a popular talk show host with legions of fans retweets a link to the post, the Eve of Equality website crashes, the Twitter count jumps from a paltry 19 followers to nearly 250,000, and Eve is being lauded as the new voice in modern-day feminism.

So who is the Eve behind the Eve of Equality? Well…not who you’d think. Meet Everett Kane, aspiring writer and fervent feminist, and he who writes his erudite blog in his apartment, in his kitchen, at his kitchen table…which is right above one of the aforementioned strip clubs.

Hilarious and smart, and offering thoughtful commentary on a subject that is flooding our headlines, newsfeeds, Twitter feeds, and society, Poles Apart is Terry Fallis at his best, confirming his status as a king of CanLit comedy.

TERRY FALLIS grew up in Toronto and earned an engineering degree from McMaster University. Drawn to politics at an early age, he worked for cabinet ministers at Queen’s Park and in Ottawa. His first novel, The Best Laid Plans, began as a podcast, then was self-published, won the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, was re-published by McClelland & Stewart to great reviews, was crowned the 2011 winner of CBC’s Canada Reads as “the essential Canadian novel of the decade,” and became a CBC Television series. His next two novels, The High Road and Up and Down were finalists for the Leacock Medal. A skilled public speaker, Terry Fallis is also co-founder of the public relations agency Thornley Fallis. He lives in Toronto with his wife and two sons, and blogs at www.terryfallis.com. Follow @TerryFallis on Twitter.

Advance Praise for Poles Apart:

“Terry Fallis has written a delightful book about a young man inspired by feminism to contribute to the cause…. Funny and engaging, Poles Apart is a thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening read.”
—Judy Rebick, founding publisher, rabble.ca, and former president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women

Poles Apart is quite possibly the most fun you can ever have while reading about the struggle for equality. Light-hearted, wickedly funny in skewering every male/female stereotype, and surprisingly touching in some of its more tender and off-beat relationships, this novel lights up the lovability of feminism and its defenders.”
—Michele Landsberg, journalist, author, feminist, and social activist

“I am a blogger. Terry Fallis is supposedly not a blogger. But he’s written a cleverly observed book that’s taught me things about blogging and being a blogger that even I wasn’t aware of.”
—Elaine Lui, author of Listen to the Squawking Chicken and founder of LaineyGossip.com
