Praise for Jack Knox:
“Canada needs more Knox!”—Will Ferguson
“Knox is the most underrated writer in Canada.”—Les Leyne
“There are a few key secrets to a happy life in Victoria—avoiding downtown when the cruise ships are in, knowing exactly how late you can get to the ferry terminal, and reading Jack Knox.”—Mark Leiren-Young

From bestselling author and beloved columnist Jack Knox comes a new collection of unforgettable true stories about the people who shape the unique culture of Vancouver Island and its surrounding areas. Full of humanity, heart, and sometimes humour, On the Rocks with Jack Knox celebrates ordinary people who have extraordinary stories to tell. From Alban Michael, the last person on Earth to speak Nuchatlaht, to Diana Deans, the Port Angeles customs inspector who caught the Millennium Bomber, to Victoria’s Rudi Hoenson, who survived a Japanese labour camp and the atomic bomb at Nagasaki to become one of the happiest souls you’ll ever meet, the people in this fascinating volume represent all walks of life. Elders, heroes, criminals, and oddballs are all worthy subjects in the world of Jack Knox.

Jack Knox is the author of two bestselling humour books, Hard Knox: Musings from the Edge of Canada and Opportunity Knox: Twenty Years of Award-Losing Humour Writing, both based on his popular column at the Victoria Times Colonist and both long-listed finalists for the Leacock Medal for Humour. His latest book is On the Rocks with Jack Knox: Islanders I Will Never Forget. Knox’s career highlights include being blasted with blowhole spray by Luna the orca whale, interviewing a nude porn star, and getting a phone call from Barack Obama four days before the 2008 presidential election. In his spare time he performs in a rock ’n' roll band with members of his Tour de Rock cycling team.

On the Rocks with Jack Knox is a remarkable gift to the people of Vancouver Island. It’s a generous, heart-expanding glimpse into a huge range of quietly extraordinary lives. It reminded me of our shared humanity at a time when I really needed that.

- Susan Juby, author of The Woefield Poultry Collective and Republic of Dirt

A keen observer of humanity.
