John Armstrong uses his wry wit and vivid prose to evoke a life immeasurably enriched by one best friend after another. He tells boyhood tales of romping along the railroad tracks with Spooky the mutt, touching accounts of Sluggo the Rottweiler befriending sex workers, howl-inducing memories of laying a treasured friend to rest during a rain- and beer-soaked night, and many more stories both moving and hilarious.
John Armstrong is the singer and guitarist for The Modernettes and the author of two previous memoirs, Guilty of Everything (a BC Book Prizes finalist) and Wages. He lives in Chilliwack, BC.
Praise for Guilty of Everything:
“Armstrong is a topnotch storyteller: insightful, smart, self-deprecating and funny.”
“Armstrong is a natural storyteller.”
Praise for Wages:
“One hell of a writer.”
“A ribald, scabrous and liquids-through-the-nose funny memoir.”
--Globe & Mail
“Like H.L. Mencken by way of Charles Bukowski, with a dash of Evelyn Waugh... Every other page has a quotable line or laugh-out-loud moment.”
