Funny and self-skewering: The Slip, by Mark Sampson

CommittinThe Slipg career suicide, whether deliberately or accidentally, has figured in all three of Mark Sampson’s novels to date. In the very serious and aptly titled Sad Peninsula, first-person narrator Michael finds himself teaching English to children in Korea after knowingly sabotaging his livelihood as a journalist back home in Eastern Canada. In The Slip, first-person narrator Philip Sharpe shares with us, his dear readers, the gaffe he unknowingly commits on live TV and the week-and-a-bit of mayhem, both hilarious and sad, that ensues.
