Douglas & McIntyre

Fifty Shades of Black

Hilarious insights and revelations from one of Canada’s favourite humorists.


The award-winning author of Looking Blackward, Black is the New Green, and many more, is “black” again with more gut-busting stories and essays. In this latest collection of fascinating facts and amusing tales, Black recounts his journey to Vietnam and Thailand, where his “dirty” American money is turned down and a massage turns into a fish feeding frenzy. He turns his critical eye and warped funny bone to a wide array of offbeat topics, including the cafe-office culture of free wifi and complex coffee concoctions, and the danger of reading too many kinky romance novels. Yet, good news is in the air too, with Black extolling how gum had been found to be good for children’s teeth. With hilarious insights, Arthur Black once again proves why he’s a Canadian comedy writing legend.
