Lucien's Labour LostNorthern New Brunswick’s blue-collar philosopher has seen better days, but his sense of humour is alive and well. The mill has long shut down, most of his buddies are living in Fort Mac, but his fear of flying has made him stay home and become the owner of a little bar, The Wooden Squirrel. Politics, technology, alcohol, obesity, health care, and the new economy. . . no topic is off-limits for the North Shore raconteur Lucien!


“Lucien is a kind of gift from Button to the rest of the country… (Lucien’s Labour Lost) is not to be missed because it is a finely textured portrait that brings a slice of Canada so warm, vibrant, hopeful.”—The Ottawa Citizen
