Canada (Hardcover) (Mike Myers)
about this item
Comedy superstar Mike Myers writes from the heart about his home and native land. Mike Myers is a world-renowned actor, producer and writer, and the man behind some of the most memorable comic characters of our time. But as he says: "no description of me is truly complete without saying I’m a Canadian." He has often winked and nodded to Canada in his marvelous body of work, but now he turns the spotlight full-beam on his homeland. His hilarious and heartfelt new book is part memoir, part history and complete entertainment—a funny and thoughtful analysis of what makes Canada Canada, Canadians Canadians and what being Canadian has always meant to Mike Myers. A true patriot who happens to be an expatriate, Myers is in a unique position to explore Canada from within and without. With this, his first book, Mike brings his love for Canada to the fore at a time when the country is once again looking ahead with hope and national pride. The book will be fully illustrated throughout, including many treasures from the author’s personal archive. Published in the lead-up to the 2017 sesquicentennial, this is Mike Myers' birthday gift to his fellow Canadians. Or as he puts it: "In 1967, Canada turned 100. Canadians all across the country made Centennial projects. This book is my Centennial Project. I’m handing it in a little late. . . . Sorry."
