Event Notes


A farcical, rapid-fire comedy set in the backbiting, back-scratching, backstabbing world of CanLit. Rumours are rife that Canada’s pre-eminent man of letters, the august Noble Harmsworth, is on the verge of winning the Nobel Prize for Literature. But if the Nobel PoohBahs want to immortalize him, why does his former friend and admirer Lyle Lemmerman want to kill him? A love-struck acolyte, a nosy critic, a dyspeptic agent, a missing manuscript (and a missing author) all contribute to the twists, turns (and laughs) in this sophisticated, suspenseful comedy about literary fame, fortune and fakery.
