Cultural Mischief
A Practical Guide to Multiculturalism
By Frank Davey

Cultural Mischief is a collection of prose poems on the hyperbolic absurdities of multiculturalism in action. Whether digging up the midden under Greg Curnoe’s house, revisiting Hiroshima, attending a dog breeder’s show or retelling the history of Quebec from the point of view of its founding nations, the Mohawks and Algonquins, Davey delivers startling vignettes at their funniest and most thoughtful.

This book is delightfully—and deceptively—simple. It provides the reader at one and the same time the most exquisitely enjoyable bedtime reading, and a wake-up call with a better hit than the best designer espresso.

"Finally, what’s left is an irresistible, irrepressible read that’s bound to raise eyebrows."
