The Book of Lists – 2017 Edition

Jane co-wrote this revised edition of the bestselling compendium of curious information.


Before there was Buzzfeed, there was the Book of Lists, the original bestselling compendium of curious information. Basen & Farrow team up again on this revised and even more Canadian follow-up to their 2005 best-seller.


Included are updates to the classics and new, creative lists from a wide range of experts and authors like Lynn Coady, Margaret Atwood, Naomi Duguid, Jesse Wente, Kurt Browing, Jann Arden, Derek Stoffel, Candy Palmater, Anna McGarrigle, Margaret MacMillan and Shawn Micaleff.


So if you’re eager to find out the First Sexual Encounters of 17 Prominent Canadians; Canadian Pop Acts from the Eighties Who Were More Eighties Than the Eighties (Based Mostly But Not Entirely on Hairstyle); and the Romantic Musings of 4 Canadian Prime Ministers, look no further than this meticulously researched compendium.
