Sign Language and Other Tales of Montreal Wildlife

Josh Freed

Sign Language is a celebration of city life, even the moments that cause us grief. When Josh Freed writes about the agony of looking for a public toilet, the ecstasy of finding a parking spot, the intricacy of managing a VCR, we wince in recognition and chuckle at the craziness of urban survival. Sign Language is Freed's unique humourous fix on the world around us.

With illustrations by Aislin and
