With a wry and deadpan performance, Kevin Foley encapsulates the snarky and often biting humor that Arthur Black presents in this highly entertaining collection of essays Flash Black. From ludicrous language bellowed aboard any fine seafaring ship, to red herrings that turn out to be quite tangible murder weapons, this audiobook is a comical meditation on nearly every aspect of modern life, especially the oddities that occur every day that most pay no mind. Told with a series of pithy anecdotes, jokes, and stories that will have you pleasantly entertained for hours.
The author of Black Tie and Tales and Black in the Saddle Again, both winners of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humor, returns with a new collection guaranteed to tickle your funny bone and make you scratch your head at the absurdities of life in the early years of the new millennium. In slyly ironic, pointedly witty essays, Black takes aim at the vagaries of the English language, the moribund political correctness movement, and a host of rural and urban eccentrics. In fact, there's not much that Black won't write about, be it the banality of bumper stickers, the ingenuity of crows, or such everyday subjects as outhouses, hammocks and blue jeans. So sit down, settle back and loosen your belt to leave room for a belly laugh or three. Flash Black is witty, weird, one hundred percent Canadian and guaranteed to delight.
