More About the Author

Gordon Kirkland is a three-time winner of Canada's Stephen Leacock Award of Merit for Humour. His first book, Justice Is Blind - And Her Dog Just Peed In My Cornflakes (Harbour) took the award in 2000, and his second book, Never Stand Behind A Loaded Horse (Thistledown) won it in 2005. His third book, When My Mind Wanders It Brings Back Souvenirs (AuthorHouse) won the 2006 Award. His other books of humorous essays include I Think I'm Having One Of Those Decades (2006), I May Be Big But I Didn't Cause That Solar Eclipse (2007) and Holly Jolly Frivolity (2009).

His latest book, The Plight Before Christmas is the story of a family facing numerous comedic calamities and disasters as an early 1960's holiday season rapidly approaches. This is what can happen when Murphy's Law takes over the holidays and sends them careening off in several comical directions.

His first novel, Crossbow is a darkly comedic mystery. Think Fargo without the wood chipper.

He has toured extensively throughout Canada and the United States with his books, and for speaking engagements at writer's conferences, festivals and other events.

Kirkland wrote the syndicated humor column Gordon Kirkland At Large for newspapers in Canada and the USA from 1994 to 2007. He is also a frequent guest on radio and television in both countries.

He says he grew up in a family filled with laughter, with his late mother being the one who would most frequently "stir the pot." He often recalls that "she had a point system for us. We got 10 points if we could make a sibling pass a liquid through their sinuses at the dinner table."

Kirkland suffered a spinal cord injury in 1990, and "walks" with the aid of forearm crutches. He makes it part of his mission to prove that people with disabilities can still have a sense of humor.

I enjoy his humor and stories and the easy-goingness of his style. I call his humor gentle humor, it's not crude, rude, or mean spirited, nor is it trying hard to be clever or biting, there's just a naturalness that is comforting and makes me feel happy after reading it.

I accidently hit two stars, but wanted to give it five! Loved the book, every page contained humor. I am now reading all of his books.

Nice amusing stuff to read at bedtime to help wind down from the day. I've enjoyed all the Gordon Kirkland Kindle books.

This book is so funny that I got up early to finish it. I just don't do that. And that town in Austria. Oh my.

Appalling. Badly written, even more badly edited. Needs a proof-reader and cutting. Just atrocious. And now this review needs six more words before it can be submitted. Wish I'd never bought this book but what is read can not be unread.

I would not recommend it to any of my friends to read, if they were seeking humor.I don't remember the title of the first book I read by him, but that had me laughing out loud quite often.
