Absurdity reigns in multiple award-winning author and playwright Clem Martini's newest collection of work, Martini with a Twist--five plays spanning two decades of Martini's career, from 1989 to 2009.

A lonely elephant handler befriends the half-blind woman who drove through his yard, a severed head in a suitcase life support system is given a second chance at life, a quiet shut-in wrestles with the jealous ghost of his wife, a young woman with the ability to smell lies struggles to make new friends, and a mismatched pod of whales in the Pacific Ocean struggle with identity, love, and interspecies dating. With a sharp tongue and impeccable comedic timing, Martini's characters resonate beyond their impossible situations, their fears and hesitations all too human.

Clem Martini has produced more than thirty plays, and has published nine books of fiction and nonfiction, including the Calgary Book Award-winning Bitter Medicine: A Graphic Memoir of Mental Illness. He has volunteered for and worked with a number of writing related organizations including: The Writers Guild of Canada, Alberta Playwrights Network, Access Copyright, and the Canadian Creative Writers and Writing Programs. Additionally, Martini sits as a committee member on the Senate Commission for Mental Health. He is currently Head of the Drama Department at the University of Calgary. He lives in Calgary with his wife Cheryl.
