Description

"Donate to ABS. Do it for Courtney. Do it for his safety." Preying on loving parents is second nature to Suzanne Foley. So is drinking to oblivion while shilling for the publicly-supported Alberta Broadcasting System (ABS). When new management from Toronto threatens to gut the station, Suzanne rallies reluctant coworkers to fight back. Sex with a younger man, intrusive memories and regular trips to the prescription counter aside, she pins all her hope on ABS surviving another day because as she tells Leslie, "It's all I have." Set in the throes of a bone-chilling Edmonton winter, Please Stand By lays to waste CanCon, the east-west divide, and secrets that can kill. Funny, wild and brave, Please Stand By is a fast and furious read for mind and heart.
