Poles Apart (2015)



“Terry Fallis writes just about the tidiest romantic comedic novels you can find on Earth, let alone in Canada.”

The Globe and Mail


“Terry Fallis has written a delightful book about a young man inspired by feminism to contribute to the cause. . . . Funny and engaging, Poles Apart is a thoroughly enjoyable and enlightening read.”

Judy Rebick, founding publisher, rabble.ca, and former president of the National Action Committee on the Status of Women


Poles Apart is quite possibly the most fun you can ever have while reading about the struggle for equality. Light-hearted, wickedly funny in skewering every male/female stereotype, and surprisingly touching in some of its more tender and off-beat relationships, this novel lights up the lovability of feminism and its defenders.”

Michele Landsberg, journalist, author, feminist, and social activist


“I am a blogger. Terry Fallis is supposedly not a blogger. But he’s written a cleverly observed book that’s taught me things about blogging and being a blogger that even I wasn’t aware of.”

Elaine Lui, author of Listen to the Squawking Chicken and founder of LaineyGossip.com

“Fallis is an expert at creating a cast of characters who display compassion, empathy, and humour. This new novel (Poles Apart) showcases why he is one of Canada’s most popular novelists.”
