The Crowd from Roaring Cove is a collection of short stories about the people in an imaginary Newfoundland outport. The stories are connected by a central character, the teacher, who tells their stories.

In this book you will meet some sleeveens and devilskins. You might imagine yourself in the cuddy of a punt, listening to some of the bunkum that goes on. And if you should get caught in a dwoi, you could come ashore and shelter for a while in a droke and warm yourself over a bonfire, but mind the flankers!

The Crowd from Roaring Cove is a fine piece of Newfoundland humour. Bruce Stagg's soft satire on outport life is brilliant; his caricatures and unusual situations are hilarious. Such a "rich look at Newfoundland outport life" should not be missed.

-- The Canadian Book Review Annual

About the Author

Bruce StaggBruce Stagg is a teacher of English and Theatre Arts at Clarenville High School, in Clarenville, Newfoundland. For more than twenty years he has been writing and directing plays for high school production. He has published a book of plays and has won many awards for his work.

Bruce introduced readers to the fictitious town of Roaring Cove in A Segunda Vinda, A Roaring Cove Christmas Story published in 1993. In 1995 ten more Roaring Cove stories were released on tape and compact disc entitled Baloney Chunks and Gravy. Bruce has also written and performed Roaring Cove stories for both KIXX Country (CKIX) and CBC radio stations, and he often performs his stories for live audiences.

Embellished with the unique humour and the soft social commentary of the narrator - Roaring Cove's schoolmaster - this book, The Crowd from Roaring Cove, offers a rich look at Newfoundland outport life and gives a warm sense of its people.
