A two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, Terry Fallis is the author of six bestselling novels. His debut, The Best Laid Plans, a satire of Canadian politics that began as a podcast and was originally self-published, won the Leacock Medal for Humour in 2008 and CBC’s Canada Reads in 2011. It was subsequently adapted as a six-part television miniseries, as well as a stage musical. Four subsequent novels – The High Road, Up and Down, No Relation, and Poles Apart – were all Leacock Medal finalists, with No Relation winning in 2015. A former Liberal Party strategist, Fallis is the co-founder of the public relations agency Thornley Fallis. He lives in Toronto with his wife and two sons.
Reading a Fallis novel is like watching The Big Bang Theory or some other well-scripted TV sitcom. You laugh, you are entertained, you return to your original life refreshed.” — Quill & Quire
