Promised Land- A Novel of Cape Breton

  Author:   Bill Conall    
  Publisher:  Four East Publications

Awarded the 2014 Stephen Leacock Memorial Medal For Humour, The Promised Land skillfully and hilariously navigates the ebb and flow of island life on Cape Breton where things go from bad to worse to Oh My Goodness! And all the while, the author shares his characters’ belief that “They’re all good days if we’re here to see them.”

In the Has Been category, Bill Conall has a significant backlist. Present and former occupations include library assistant, long-haul trucker, salesman (cars, wine, trade show exhibits, commercial printing, encyclopedia, signage), road musician, printer, fork lift operator, bartender, recording artist, and writer. Bill lives on the back side of Murray Mountain in Cape Breton with artist Rosemary McLean. Not completely 'back to the land' but close, they grow vegetables, harvest wild things from the forest and cut their own firewood.
