Will Ferguson is one of Canada’s most beloved humorists. He was born and raised in the former fur-trapping settlement of Fort Vermilion in the backwoods of northern Canada. Fortunately, he managed to escape, and he has since traveled throughout Latin America and East Asia. Indeed, he prides himself on having gotten utterly and hopelessly lost in more than a dozen exotic locales.
His first book, Why I Hate Canadians, was a best-seller and established him as an iconoclastic writer; his most recent, How to Be a Canadian, coauthored with his brother Ian, has been a Globe and Mail best-seller for over eighty weeks.
