At A Crazy Time Like This is a new collection of short stories about friendship, lessons both hilarious and trying, and colourful eighties Toronto. It stands alone, but also works as the companion volume to The Kind Of Friend You Need
Escaping a mind warping cult as a teenager is a big deal – but it leaves you with an awful lot of work to do, and a whole lot of big questions about the real world.
This book is filled with crazy friends and eccentric mentors whose gifts have never stopped shining for me. And when I say colourful Toronto I mean psychedelics, all night dance clubs, revolutionary politics, basement recording studios and heroes who ultimately revealed far more than they meant to, and sometimes even taught me things they never learned themselves.
The stories in this collection are:
The Benevolent Dictator
What Happens When You Smoke A Joint During Morning Break In The Digital Lab
The Best Robert Anton Wilson Story I Know
Enough For One Lifetime
Through Lines, Side Tracks and Back Flips
Fate, Fault, Foolishness
“At a Crazy Time Like This” is 212 Pages softcover trade format ( 8.5″ by 5.5″) is generously typeset in Baskerville for non-youthful eyeballs, has fifteen illustrations (cover included) and weighs a little under 300 Grams.
