      Description

      The roots of this book are real and full of characters and heroic stories of the sort one might expect from migration tales, , evoking border crossings past and present.
      In Abou Farman's hands the stories turn into a larger meditation on movement, conveyed with humour and a subtle irony. Clerks of the Passage takes us on a journey in the company of some strange and great migrants, from the 3.5 million year-old bipedal hominids of Laetoli, Tanzania, to an Iranian refugee who spent seventeen years in the transit lounge at Charles de Gaulle airport, from Xerxes to Milton to Revelations, from Columbus to Don Quixote to Godot.

    Was It Good For You? and other recent cartoons by Aislin
    9780987994615 Electronic book text HUMOR / Form On Sale Date:July 01, 2012
    $16.95 CAD 9.5 x 9.5 x 0.4 in | 168 pages Canadian Rights: Y Linda Leith Publishing
    • Marketing Copy

      Description
      Was it good for you? It was really good for Aislin! Montreal’s infrastructure is crumbling at a faster rate than any city in North America – and there lurks Aislin amongst the thousands of orange construction cones, sketchbook in hand. Nationalism in Quebec would appear to be going through death throes while Aislin watches, just as he has since the beginning, pencil at the ready. And bully Stephen Harper finally has his majority, an event that Aislin will be caricaturing keenly, even after over forty years of watching Canadian Prime Ministers come and go. And then there are those rare quiet days in Canada when Aislin has a world full of events beyond our borders to draw upon. WAS IT GOOD FOR YOU? Is a collection of Aislin’s favourites drawn over the last three years. It is his 45th book. He is aiming for fifty. For more biographical information on Aislin (née Terry Mosher), please visit: www.aislin.com
      Bio

      Montreal Gazette cartoonist Terry Mosher (Aislin) has won two National Newspaper Awards; five individual prizes from the international Salon of Caricature; Canadian News Hall of Fame, Officer of the Order of Canada, and honorary Doctor of Letters from McGill University.

      Reviews
      The name Aislin is derived from a Gaelic word meaning ‘dream’, but to many of the more dubious members of Canada’s political class, Aislin is something more of a nightmare. It’s a name that has become synonymous with biting political satire and razor-sharp wit. But more importantly he is Canada’s most celebrated shit disturber. I admire that more than you can imagine. -- Rick Mercer

      Description
      The idea for this collection came from a conversation I had with the great Russian cartoonist Oleg Dergachov, who now lives in Montreal. Oleg told me of a Moscow cartoonist who, on his deathbed, asked that onea of his favourite cartoons be engraved on his headstone rather than the usual text. Apparently a group of colleagues now gather annually and toast their former friend over his unique gravestone with a glass of vodka or two. The anecdote poses a question of any cartoonist: What cartoon have you drawn to date that you would most like to be remembered for? So I asked all the political cartoonists now working right across Canada that very question – and then to send me their favourites for this book. This book then is a snapshot of contemporary Canadian concerns and attitudes – some quite controversial – as illustrated through the wit and wisdom of our cartoonists. Given the variety of styles and points of view, this collection is proof that Canadian cartoonists working right across the land are very, very good at what they do. -- Terry Mosher
