The Real Story of Christopher Columbus
Morton Ritts

In this witty, fast-paced novel, Sidd Hart, the youthful and sensitive protagonist, muses ironically on his own and the human condition as the sixties lurch to a close.

We follow Sidd Hart as he zigzags around Toronto, London and Barcelona on an obsessive quest for love and fame -- "or a minor form of recognition at least." On the way we meet a large cast of bizarre, endearing characters that includes: the Dead Wringers, a gang of misfits who hang out at an obscure Toronto laundromat; the hard-working artistes of Puss'N'Boots, a London strip club; and the surrealistic crew of Columbus's flagship the Santa Maria.
