“Terry Fallis is fast becoming a master of fiction writing…. What delightful lunacy Fallis has concocted here, with a dollop of intrigue and even romance.” Montreal Gazette
This is the story of a young copywriter in New York City. He’s worked at the same agency for fifteen years, and with a recent promotion under his belt, life is good. Then, one morning he finds himself unceremoniously fired from his job, and after he catches his live-in girlfriend moving out of their apartment a couple hours later, he’s also single. Believe it or not, these aren’t the biggest problems in his life. There’s something bigger, something that has been haunting him his whole life, something that he’ll never be able to shake. Meet Earnest Hemmingway.
What’s in a name? Well, if you share your moniker with the likes of some of the most revered, infamous, and sometimes dreaded names in history, plenty. This is Earnest’s lifelong plight, but now he’s had enough. It’s time to take back his name.
Wry, clever, and utterly engaging, No Relation is Terry Fallis at the top of his form.
