The Moosehead Anthology 9: Career Suicide!

Career Suicide is a collection of a new generation of funny talkers. Poems and stories which find their laughs in different quarters: in the wry, the slapstick, the satiric, and the dark. One of the characteristics of contemporary Canadian literary humour may well be its engagement with popular culture. Here the importance of DKNY, Corey Feldman, Lik M Aid, Randy Savage, John Cougar Mellancamp, the game of Clue, all question the limiting purview of what may be deemed ‘serious’. As odd, off-putting, and hilarious as that may be, the authors of Career Suicide find their laughs, as we all do, in the limitations of human experience and, one suspects, pre-mixed mai tais.

Critical Comment

“The funniest anthology of youngish, hippish Canadian writers that side of Winnipeg.”

— Filling Station, 2003

“Mark Paterson’s ‘Other People’s Showers Or: No Soap Radio’ is so good it will make you want to lock him inside so he’ll finish his first novel faster.”

— Montreal Review of Books, 2003

“Almost everything in here is worth reading in its own right, and the book doubles as a catalogue of all the currently-unfamous-but-watch-out Canadian writers of the moment.”

— Broken Pencil, 24
