The Complete Trailer Park Boys: How to Enjoy the Trailer Park Boys When the Cable is Out (Paperback)
Shipped to Tattered Cover in 3 to 7 days
The first of its kind – a heavily illustrated, all-you-need-to-know book about the cult hit TV show, for both rabid fans and anyone who enjoys a hot toasted chicken finger.
To the storied and pastoral locales of great Canadian fiction – Leacock’s Mariposa, Lawrence’s Manawaka, Montgomery’s Avonlea – readers can now add the many splendours of Sunnyvale Trailer Park. With this lovingly designed volume, to grace even the finest toilet-side magazine basket, Ricky, Bubbles, Julian and the whole TPB crew stumble, bewildered and slightly aggravated, from the screen to the page – without spilling a drop of rum and Coke.
Working in concert with the show’s creators Matthew Sibiga and Don Wininger have developed a wide range of interpretive devices, helpful lists, historical mementoes, legal advice, wrestling, kitty-care and grooming tips, and more, to aid in any fan’s appreciation of the show – or substitute for it when the cable is out. Added to these features is a two-page synopsis of every episode, including stats, air dates and best lines. Numerous photos and sidebars scattered throughout include quotes, philosophical gleanings and tidbits from the series.
Just in time for the next season of one of the most popular television shows ever created in Canada, The Complete Trailer Park Boys truly will be a resource no fan can do without.

About the Author
Matthew Sibiga is a book-trade professional, a Trailer Park Boys fanatic and has played guitar in several bands, most notably Eleven, a tribute to Spinal Tap. He once scored a hat-trick in a hockey game with an actual audience – about which he reminds his wife and daughters in Waterdown, Ontario, nightly.
Don Wininger has a twenty-year history in graphic design, advertising and writing. He lives in St.Catharines, where he, along with his wife and children, has always enjoyed homemade macaroni and cheese. Following the public’s lukewarm reception of Eleven, in which Don joined Matthew as a Viking-helmeted keyboardist, he finds himself lost in multiple layers of parody. He’s hoping that this hard-hitting exposé of trailer-park life will fix that.
