A funny and smart new novel about destiny—and what it means to forge your own path—from two-time Leacock Medal winner Terry Fallis.


Adam Coryell is your average high-school student—well, except for that obsession with fountain pens—when his life changes forever. Based on a study by a quirky Swedish professor that claims that every human being, regardless of athletic inclination, has a body that is suited to excel in at least one sport, it turns out that Adam is good—very good, in fact—at golf. Even though he’d never even picked up a golf club.

Almost instantly, and with his coach, hard-nosed Bobbie Davenport by his side, Adam and his new-found talent skyrocket to a prodigy-level stardom that includes tournament titles, sponsorship deals, throngs of fans following his every move, and fodder for tabloids.

But here’s the catch: Adam doesn’t really like golf. And as the life he once knew slips away—including the love of his life, the dream of being a writer, and everyday normalcy—he can’t help but wonder if all this success and fame is worth it…or if it’s enough for him.

Heartwarming and funny, sweeping and entertaining, Albatross takes readers on a journey of self-discovery.
