Notes for Monday by Barb Howard

Notes for Monday by Barb HowardNotes for Monday is the story of Tommy McBeath, the 75-year-old cranky, sexist, senior partner at a Calgary law firm.

Set on the eve of Tommy’s retirement, amidst the pastel jackets and ongoing sports of the 1988 Olympics, this novella traces Tommy’s past and his relationship (or explosive lack thereof) with his career, his co-workers, his daughter, and, most importantly, with his wife Vera.

As Monday (the day of his retirement speech) looms, the diminishing state of Vera’s mind becomes a situation that, potentially, even Tommy McBeath QC cannot quash. Written with compassion and humour from the point of view of Tommy, this is a book that targets significant points in western Canadian history and captures a generation.
