Discontented New Dad Launches New Paperback
Story by the Editor


Sunday, Feb. 26, 2006
7:30 pm - upstairs at This Ain't The Rosedale Library Bookstore 483 Church Street Toronto Hal will be launching the Vintage Canada paperback version of The Program with a reading at This Ain't The Rosedale Library. He'll be reading with Lee Gowan (The Last Cowboy). This will be a great event. Refreshments will be provided and Hal will be sporting a bottle of whiskey for the enjoyment of all...see ya there...this is part of the Fictitious reading series. Each installment features substantial readings by two fiction writers, plus an “onstage” chat.

The Program -- Now available in Vintage Canada Paperback edition!
Critically acclaimed, vividly original and wholly entertaining, The Program is a unique work of stark humour and pathos that seduces its readers into the world of advertising guru Maury Stern. Through chain restaurants, forest reserves, Zionist summer camps, abandoned amusement parks and eastern European shtetls, the novel chases a mystery: what happened to Maury's son, Danny, the night he was left alone with his uncle.

On The Program:
"Niedzviecki has definitely expanded his range and is taking new risks. There's tons of talent here." -- Now Magazine
"The Program is fascinating...and in every way original." -- Bill Richardson, the Globe and Mail
