No Escape from Greatness

No Escape from Greatness

ISBN: 9780888015372
$19.00

Fame can be fickle. Nobody knows that better than overnight sensation Gabriel Pegg … you know, Port-o-Potty Guy … from Erratic Automatic. Remember him? He went from the penthouse to the outhouse, and now Gabriel is persona non grata in the entertainment biz. Broke, behind on his child support payments, and a wanted man, Gabriel heads to the only place he has left: Greatness, Manitoba, population … don’t know, but there’s one traffic light. Returning to sever all family responsibilities so that he can assume his rightful place as a world-venerated artist, he somehow manages to sign himself up for six-days-a-week custody of his 11-year-old daughter. Sometimes there’s just no escape from greatness.

"Beautifully written, sharply observed, warm, wise, and funny, No Escape from Greatness is the thing we’ve all been waiting for: the Great Canadian Novel! But if there is already one (what the hell do I know, I’m an American, we don’t know anything!) then, by God, this one is the next one!"
