Today's blog post is from Allister Thompson, editor of Christopher Ward's new book Dead Brilliant.

 

Author Christopher Ward, as one of the original VJs on MuchMusic in the eighties, was part of the youth of a very large part of Canada’s population. In fact, and I’m not buttering him up here, he was my favourite. He hosted the Fromage show that collected the most heinous videos of the year and seemed to have a pretty cynical, measured take on the whole pop culture thing. As a noted cynic myself, I found his attitude refreshing.

Scott Carter’s novel is his second trip to the murky underworld of the male psyche, the first being Blind Luck, which dealt with illicit, dangerous gambling and ruminations on the nature of fate.
