Fishing Up the Moon

Pedlar Press, 1998

Trying without success to manage a series of argumentative inner voices, a young Toronto secretary is suddenly catapulted out of her obsessive existence into hilarious adventure on Cape Breton Island. A humourous and also touching tale, Fishing Up The Moon is a tribute to the unconquerable spirit of the people of Cape Breton and to the voice of wisdom within each of us.

"A delicious adventure. Anne Hines presents a heroine who strips away the neurotic dross of life to discover a wonder of possibilities. This is a debut novel that tilts at convention, with hilarious consequence."
- Marsha Boulton, author of Letters From The Country, winner of the 1996 Stephen Leacock Award for Humour
