Festival man by Geoff Berner( )

5 editions published between 2013 and 2016 in English and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

At turns funny and strangely sobering, this "found memoir" is a picaresque tale of inspired, heroic deceit, incompetence, and -- just possibly -- triumph. Follow the flailing escapades of maverick music manager Campbell Ouiniette at the Calgary Folk Festival, as he leaves a trail of empty liquor bottles, cigarette butts, bruised egos, and obliterated relationships behind him. His top headlining act has abandoned him for the Big Time. In a fit of self-delusion or pure genius (or perhaps a bit of both), Ouiniette devises an intricate scam, a last hurrah in an attempt to redeem himself in the eyes of his girlfriend, the music industry, and the rest of the world. He reveals his path of destruction in his own transparently self-justifying, expulsive, profane words, with digressions into the Edmonton hardcore punk rock scene, the Yugoslavian Civil War, and other epicentres of chaos

The fiddler is a good woman : a novel by Geoff Berner( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 64 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Novelist Geoff Berner has been tasked with writing a biography of DD, a mysterious, charismatic, chimerical journeywoman violinist who has, it seems, dropped off the face of the earth. But Berner finds her supposed friends painting him such contradictory portraits of her that he cant̉ separate fact from fiction. As his project is taken over by the lively, infuriating, entertaining testimony, DD herself starts to get lost in all the eyewitness accounts and swear-to-god true stories. Who is DD? Where did she go? And what happened to her book? Travel through a world of knockabout musicians, train hoppers, and fierce women, on the trail of an inimitable artist who really lives in the moment while others are just fiddling around."--
