I've been listening to Terry Fallis read his second novel The High Road, another piece of devilish political satire. He and his publisher agreed to provide it free in podcast format before the launch of the print edition in September. It's a very funny tale of political shenanigans in a rural-ish Canadian riding. The serialization is six chapters in, and I very much look forward to each weekly installment. Fallis is the author of the very well-received The Best Laid Plans which I have not read yet, but it's on my list. It was the winner of the 2008 Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour.
