On the Fly

On the Fly

A passion that would sell out an arena’s worth of season tickets in mere minutes. A passion that would electrify the home team and send shivers down their opponents’s spines. A passion that sports fans live for each and every season.

Part chronicle, part memoir, part essay, and rant, On the Fly follows the return of professional hockey to the river city, capturing the thrill of every faceoff from the fan’s view in the stands. From the last minute goals to the missed calls, On the Fly brings a true “gut” reaction to hockey. What’s more, Tefs reflects on what it is to be a fan and lose yourself in the ecstasy and agony of the game.

Dead Man on a Bike

Dead Man on a Bike

Wayne Tefs is the Dead Man on a Bike, his posthumous follow-up memoir to Roller Coaster: A Cancer Journey

Brutally visceral in his approach, Tefs explains, “this book is about the wound, about how cancer sticks a knife in your side and says, There, do what you can. What are the options? You can fall over dead; whinge out your days; leave the knife to fester; yank it out and splash blood around; pretend the knife is not there; anaesthetize it; use it to wound others; rage. Attempt to ride it away on a bicycle.”

And ride he does. Tefs cycles along the highways and byways of the Manitoba prairie; steep and arid Catalina Foothills; and lush, rolling French countryside. While he rides, he unflinchingly examines his sense of Self, uncovering bright flares of insight, earthy humour, deep seated fears of mortality, and Zen-like moments when the Self falls away and all that remains is peace.

Still Me: A Golf Tragedy in 18 Parts

Still Me: A Golf Tragedy in 18 Parts

Golf is the only way I know to control time. It happens in the millisecond of that focused backswing, right before the violence of intention.

When I escape time, I escape memory. In that way, golf is an alchemy. A magick. I am a practicing magician.

When James Khoury discovers that his prized golf memorabilia from some of Canada's best golf courses has been destroyed, he journeys back through memories of being on the fairway, his struggles with gnawing ineptitude, and a troubled relationship with his wife and son.

Slowly, his memory precipitates to reveal something deeper at work, and James finds himself in the midst of a game where the stakes couldn’t be higher.
