Summary

Summary

In Hard Knox , seasoned columnist and consummate everyman Jack Knox offers up his uniquely hilarious views on Canadian life as seen from the western fringes of the country--in particular from the "Island of Misfit Toys" as he aptly calls his Vancouver Island home. This treasure trove of west-coast wit and wisdom touches on everything from "smug anti-Americanism" to extreme weather to flagrant public displays of affection in Canada's westernmost capital. Whether you're a born-and-bred Islander, a transplanted Albertan in the throes of culture shock, or a confused tourist, we all have something to learn from the school of Hard Knox.
