Longlisted for the 2007 Victoria Butler Book Prize Arthur Black--bestselling author, three-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, beloved radio personality, and newspaper columnist-- proves in his latest sidesplitting collection of tales, Black to the Grindstone , that, without a doubt, you not only get better but funnier with age.Demonstrating once again why he is one of Canada's most loved jokesters, Black masterfully captures the laughter that often bursts out of the seams of everyday life. From an unexpected drag race to a Google search for a picture of the illusive "Arthur the Meek," you just never know when a regular day is going to turn into comedic genius. Black provides uproarious insight into uses a matador might have for a teacup, mango or simply some paper towel, the lengths one might go to defend the aural mishearing we've believed in for far too long and the bitter deception felt upon discovering that the hootenanny's bathroom really isn't "on the right" after all. But be warned--adding these stories to your day-to-day reading may also double as a daily abdominal workout.
