You Better Watch Out Greg Malone

Price: CDN$29.95

Book Description
A memoir from one of Canada's comic geniuses that is as moving as it is funny, about a young boy who survives, among other things, school with the Irish Christian Brothers, early romance, encounters with bullets and the "perfect family."

Set against the colourful backdrop of old St John's, the book echoes with the voices and stories of a bygone ear as it moves us into the joys and challenges of the new and modern 1950's. Along the way we meet luminaries such as Danny Williams, the future premier, reluctantly playing the part of St Bernadette in the all-boys play, with Greg entirely delighted to be dressed as her "chatty sister." Written with humility and wit, You Better Watch Out speaks to us all about the predicament of being different, the magic of a slice of hot-buttered homemade bread with molasses, the thrill of tobogganing with your best friend under a full moon and the undeniable appeal of the annual Christmas catalogue. Poignant, authentic and funny - Malone's book offers us a unique window into the various joys and torments of a boyhood spent in a beloved city. Vividly illustrated with 40 family photographs throughout, this is a beguiling first book from a natural storyteller.
