With humour, irony, reminiscences and nostalgia, MARTY GERVAIS brings small town living and its people back to life. The son of an auto worker, he was raised as a staunch Roman Catholic in Windsor, Ontario. The 1950’s was an era obsessed with morality, followed by the hope and turmoil of the 1960’s. Marty Gervais was a keen and insightful chronicler of all decades, one of the best journalists in southwestern Ontario, writing for the Windsor Star. Finally, AFTERNOONS WITH THE DEVIL: GROWING UP CATHOLIC brings together his best writing over those many decades.
