- Author Bio
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.

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
