The Best Laid Plan
This book beat out work by Douglas Coupland and Will Ferguson because it is very, very good–a terrific Canadian political satire.
Here’s the set up: A burnt-out politcal aide quits just before an election–but is forced to run a hopeless campaign on the way out. He makes a deal with a crusty old Scot, Angus McLintock–an engineering professor who will do anything, anything, to avoid teaching English to engineers–to let his name stand in the election. No need to campaign, certain to lose, and so on.
