This irrepressible first novel appeared in Canada, in 1984, and concerns a perfect golden boy who, when he finishes high school, has it all. He's handsome and smart, the star of the hockey team, has a beautiful girlfriend, seven sisters and a mother who fawn over him, and three dogs that adore him. He is a strutting peacock, a prima donna whose narcissism knows no bounds. And then, he goes off to college and his downfall. And from his lofty height, when he hits the dirt, his poignant and comic landing makes a very loud noise.
