One of the funniest writers around is Canada’s Gordon Kirkland. This essay he wrote for the BookExpo America (actually, the answers he provided to some profile questions that had been sent out to BookExpo’s writers) will give you a taste of his distinctive style.
Gordon was one of the presenters at the Erma Bombeck humor writing workshop I attended last year. He has a wry, unabashedly masculine, slightly warped, and very, well, Canadian, sense of humor. As a former PR person for the Canadian government, Gordon is particularly clever when playing with politically incorrect topics, such as his own physical disability.
Gordon is also a master in the field of syndication of columns and promotion of books. But that’s another story.
