Moodie's Tale

Patty Osborne

When a book by Eric Wright arrives at the Geist office, I snap it up. I'm a mystery buff and Wright is one of my favourites. But Moodie's Tale (Key Porter), which just came in, is not a mystery; it's a humorous story about an Englishman who finds himself zooming up the academic ladder from English instructor to president of the W. C. Van Horne Institute of Technological Arts in one academic year—entirely due to other peoples' political manoeuvering. At the pinnacle of the presidency, he loses his job and heads north to experience the real Canada, where he manages to fake his way through a brief stint as a fishing guide and uses his childhood scouting skills to save his boss's life.
