A Bad Hair Day, Hair is in or Hairy Politics?


Bad hair day

I couldn’t help it. I had a really good laugh when by chance I read an article in the National Post written by Canada’s ‘Queen Bee’ writer Margaret Attwood. She gets awards left, right and centre for every new book she writes. One could turn “Green with Envy” – but I have to admit as of yet I have never finished reading a whole book of hers. Oh yes, I have started several. But this column in the National Post is hilarious. I would give her another award for it!

Click on it and read it for interest or read it for fun. I was surprised that it was published at all and then I read a day or two later that it had been taken off the website by the editor but then a censored version was re-published an hour or so later. I would love to see the original, – or is what I read, the original? Oh Margaret, – I congratulate you on this dare devil write up, I love how you tackled a political ‘question’ with humour!

About gmroeder

Author: - there was so much I never talked about and now, that my memoir "We Don't Talk About That" is written I can't stop talking about it. And the reviews I get are awesome; so I think this book needed to be written. Interesting that I receive many e-mails from people who read the book and now tell me their similar stories... Did I open "a can of worms?" I think there are so many people who carry a heavy memory load and they do need to "unload". But interesting enough, even more people want to know MORE of my life and therefore I am working on a sequel.

  1. About Atwood – I love her article. but I’ve only got only one of her novels, and worked my way diligently through it. The thing about fiction is that it ought not to be hard work. On the other hand, if you review the history of literary awards, they are all awarded to ‘literary’ fiction. It’s circular reasoning, of course. Literary fiction wins literary awards; and literary fiction is, by definition, more about the unfolding of beautiful words clothing a theme of universal importance rather than fiction appealing to the masses of average readers – that is, appealing to you and me.
    As for Harper – how stupid is THAT, to call an election just in time for the Duffy trial. The Duffy trial shows us a very important detail of Harper’s fundamental character. When the chips are down, without a backward glance he will willingly throw his friend to the wolves.
