The adventuring duo encounters all manner of bizarre and extreme societies, as well as angry mobs, a menacing wizard, and other dangerous species of vermin. They are inventively equipped with a device called a "traveler's aid" -- a walking staff engineered to function like something between a deluxe Swiss Army knife and Batman's utility belt.
Fools Errant is a wonderfully strange and funny first novel from Canadian speechwriter and author Matthew Hughes. It's full of witty dialogue, memorable characters, wry observations and a hilarious marbling of absurd morality fables, where expectations are dashed and lessons are turned on their heads. (Peter Russo)
