How now! Blank page! For rampant rage, I write, you read These words I cage.Shakespearean writer’s chops ever-chopping, Belisle plays whack-a-mole with the hormones-a-hopping down a high school hallway near you. It’s a coming of age tale for bottled emotions that always seem to be just past their expiry date. Perhaps Shakespeare … re DB … should elaborate: Who be this sage, Who comes of age To stumbled youth As though they wage The longest war On longer shore Where hope is none To face the horror. How to escape This reddest tape That holdeth back Their back with cape?More to the point … 16-year-old Jane Chatterton bites off more than she bargained for in her bid to be more than just another girl at Ottawa’s Assumption Immaculata. Her weapons of choice? Shakespeare’s “Love’s Labour’s Lost” … and a chastity belt. The boys in grade 10 English Lit never knew what hit them.

David Belisle is a humor novelist and creator of The Trump Dig, a satirical, dinosaur take on the Puhl-DePlugg Reservoir’s goings-on during the Trumpassic Period. Like getting hit with GOV B.S. (Gatorade’s Orange Victory Bucket Splash), it’s a good time that sticks with you. … A Scrabble-playing, fantasy sports buff, the Calgary-based Belisle has sharpened his pencils in New York, Nebraska and the always fun to pronounce Flin Flon, Manitoba.
