All Roads Lead to Manyberries
by Ron Wood
This is what the Leacock jury said about Ron Wood’s And God Created Manyberries when it was short listed for the Stephen Leacock Memorial Award for Humour. And the same can be said of Wood’s sequel All Roads Lead to Manyberries. With sharp wit, bold characterization and a keen eye for observing what is important – and funny – to Canadians, Ron Wood once again caricatures the political leadership and the small town foibles of this country. Sounds rather Leacock-ian doesn’t it? As a former political backroom communications advisor, Wood has all the necessary scalpels. It’s easy for the reader to imagine the characters in this book with their concerns, their plots and their humorous approaches to life in a small Alberta town.
