      Death of a Salesman for the GQ generation, who look on the Maxim generation with despair.

    2. Melinda Worfolk on said:

      I read this because I heard a very lively interview with the author on CBC Radio, and because the premise of the book sounded interesting and entertaining It s true, there were parts that were amusing, but overall I didn t like it as much as I thought I would The author tackles a topic that is potentially interesting an emotionally stunted late 30s man who is jolted out of his comfortable, self centred, kind of unpleasant existence when he is suddenly saddled with an unavoidable responsibility b [...]

    4. Keith on said:

      Todd Babiak is one of my favorite contemporary novelists In one sense his novels follow a similar pattern A young man, no longer an adolescent, encounters various challenges in his life Three of those challenges occur in all four novels women, friends and parents Coupled to a breezy and humorous style are geographic settings and time periods that ring absolutely true For me this was most evident in The Garneau Block, andThe Book of Stanley which are set, respectively, in the Garneau neighborhood [...]

    5. Daniel Kukwa on said:

      First I discover a contemporary of Mordecai Richlerw I find a successor This is a novel that combines the heartwarming familiarity of Canadiana with modern suburban fixations, tied together with lashing of black comedy that is occasionally dark enough to blind Dracula himself As an ode to life s complexities and what it means to be mature , this is a wonderful, amusing, heart breaking piece of work.

    6. Blair on said:

      A clean piece of Canadiana, refreshing No real uniqueness except for it s locale It s a very common middle age crunch style of story There is some real life experience that permeates the pages on the part of the author You will empathize with Toby You will feel his ambition and conflict It is if anything an effective novel, but hardly original.

    7. Corry on said:

      A funny book about a thirthy seven year old self made society man who finally grows up and gets what s important in life Babiak has a nice sarcastic way of describing some very funny and sad situations

    8. Jennww2ns on said:

      I really enjoyed The Book of Stanley so I was looking forward to reading this one but I was disappointed I just didn t connect with Toby and didn t feel he was genuine I didn t even find it all that interesting until about 2 3 of the way through.

      Extremely well written Todd Babiak has a talent for making very mundane details and typical routines hilarious and a little absurd.

    12. Steven Buechler on said:

      A great read A story of a man who falls from grace but in the process learns what is really important in life Has excellent moments of humour, saddness, heart ache and foolishness.
