Abstract:

These quirky, slice-of-life tales from one of Canada's most beloved radio celebrities evoke a Quebec unknown to most English-speaking Canadians. For young Jean-Claude, a journey outside the realm of Rue Fabre in Montreal's East End constituted a veritable odyssey. Traveling in his father's truck, a candy and cigarette showroom on wheels, Jean-Claude discovers a strange and fascinating world, extraordinary individuals, and incredible situations. Endlessly tempted by this horn of plenty - red cinnamon fish, Cherry Blossom chocolates, Lifesavers, maple sugar cones, sugary strawberries, jelly beans, and black balls - Jean-Claude develops an exhaustive comparative study of sweets, with hilarious results.
