Not Quite the ClassicseBook - 2013
Colin Mochrie, a man known worldwide for working without a script, has penned a collection of stories destined to make its own mark in the literary community. Borrowing from a well-known improv game, Mochrie takes the first and last lines from familiar classics and reimagines everything in between. With the same engaging humour he exhibits on stage, television, and film, he takes the reader in bizarre and hilarious new directions. Imagine A Tale of Two Cities in which a coyote gets his revenge on a road runner or Herman Melville's Moby Dick featuring a killer toupee. Imagine Sherlock Holmes performing stand-up at a Victorian club and The Night Before Christmas with a time-travelling twist.
This inspired collection is comical, quirky, and clever--classic Mochrie.
