George Tombs is launching Mind the Gap at Brutopia, 1219 Crescent Street, 5 pm to 7 pm on Wednesday, September 25th.

This is a crazy, funny coming-of-age novel set in and around Montreal in the 1960s and 1970s – a dramatic comedy, mock epic and work of magical realism. It is about Richard Grey, a Montreal Canadiens fan who grows up watching television with a gas-mask on.Richard (don’t call him “Dick”!) deals with a very eccentric although family, then learns about the wider world, takes up journalism, yearning all the while for true love. The book is available in print, ebook and audiobook versions. George will buy the first round of drinks for guests, do a few readings, show a book video trailer, and play a few excerpts from the 8.3-hour-long audiobook (he did the narration and all 45 character voices). This is George’s first novel, and is self-published under the Evidentia Originals imprint.

The first of many things to come, the book will soon be available in select Montreal bookstores.

For now, it is on Amazon:
