Wes Side Story

About Wes Side Story:

With his usual prairie-boy wit and brutal honesty, Funk casts fiction aside and fi­nally tells his real life story in a brave unflinching memoir. Amidst the fun, there are poignant and painful moments of coming of age, coming out and coming un­done. From his days as an intensely shy farm-boy to his years as a lost soul of a young man and finally to his escapades in the writing, publishing and broadcasting world of Saskatchewan, this autobiography is a true page-turner.
