Summary
A heartfelt and outrageously funny memoir about Newfoundland, family, and being the oddest kid in school What could be better than growing up in the 1980s? How about growing up in 1980s Newfoundland, which as Mark Critch will tell you, was more like the 1960s. Critch takes us to where it all began in this tremendously funny and warm look back on his formative years. Growing up in a (very) small town wasn't easy, and Catholic school was a confusing setting that prompted many unexpected adventures. And when your father is the local radio personality, and your mother can't stop talking at all, life at home is always entertaining. Best known as the "roving reporter" for CBC's This Hour Has 22 Minutes, Mark Critch has photo-bombed Justin Trudeau, interviewed Great Big Sea's Alan Doyle (while impersonating Alan Doyle), travelled with political leaders, and crashed White House briefings. But in this hilarious debut, we learn that Critch has been causing trouble his whole life. Son of a Critch will have you longing for life in Canada's most unique province--even if you've never been there--and marvelling at how one person's childhood could be so ridiculously funny
