From two-time Leacock Medal winner Terry Fallis comes a funny and smart new novel about destiny - and what it means to forge your own path.

Adam Coryell is your average high-school student - well, except for that obsession with fountain pens - when his life changes forever. Based on a study by a quirky Swedish professor that claims that every human being, regardless of athletic inclination, has a body that is suited to excel in at least one sport, it turns out that Adam is good - very good, in fact - at golf. Even though he'd never even picked up a golf club.

Almost instantly, and with his coach, hard-nosed Bobbie Davenport by his side, Adam and his new-found talent skyrocket to a prodigy-level stardom that includes tournament titles, sponsorship deals, throngs of fans following his every move, and fodder for tabloids.

But here's the catch: Adam doesn't really like golf. And as the life he once knew slips away - including the love of his life, the dream of being a writer, and everyday normalcy - he can't help but wonder if all this success and fame is worth it . . . or if it's enough for him.

Heartwarming and funny, sweeping and entertaining, Terry Fallis's new book takes listeners on a journey of self-discovery.
