Stephen Leacock Humour Medal-winning novelist and humorist Terry Fallis talks about his best selling novel: Operation Angus.
"Angus McLintock, accidental Member of Parliament, has won re-election and is now the Minister of State for International Relations--or, in other words, he's the junior global affairs minister. In this new post, he is in London to meet with his international counterparts to discuss the upcoming G8 Summit in Washington. Unfortunately, Angus is not in charge of Canada's involvement in the summit--that task falls to the actual Global Affairs Minister, not the junior one. What Angus is responsible for is planning a brief post-summit meeting in Ottawa between the Prime Minister and the President of Russia, the former head of the KGB.
Very soon Angus and his trusty Chief of Staff are thrown into a race against the clock to uncover a Chechen sleeper cell, thwart their plans, and ultimately save the Russian President. Along the way, in classic Angus style, he will have to dodge bitter rivals, enraged protestors, and even a runaway Cessna. This is a madcap cloak-and-dagger adventure with humour and heart."
