CBC Books is all about conversation and community, which is why we want to explore the Canada Reads 2011 champion, The Best Laid Plans, chapter by chapter. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we will release an audio version of one chapter (generously recorded and given to us by author Terry Fallis) as well as pose discussion questions. You can join the conversation by commenting on the blog posts right here on the Canada Reads site or by joining the discussion group for The Best Laid Plans in the CBC Books Community.
The set-up: In Episode 16, Daniel enjoys the sweet taste of revenge in one of Ottawa's finest restaurants. Angus makes headlines yet again — at a public meeting, an irate constituent lobs a melon at the stage and he throws it right back. Both of our protagonists sit down with their new business partner in the Sanderson deal. They call him "Slick," and it's not because he has a way with words.
