Lindsay Wincherauk is a record-holding (Saskatoon Sports Hall of Fame) one-eyed quarterback, author, freelance opinion-editorial columnist, and a marketing + human resources guru for the No. 1 Labour Agency in Vancouver for more than 14-years. On several occasions, he’s been mistaken for Vin Diesel and, the Domino Pizza Noid.
Most of that was true, except of course for the Noid. He knows his memoirs (Meta) are breathtakingly compelling, filled with unsettling twists and turns, amusing + disturbing family moments, giddiness, and gripping painful moments that morph quickly into brightness. With every page turned, he invites readers to participate in his life's ride. If the prose falters, he was told to add gratuitous high-speed nudity, naked, nudity.
Here are the straight goods: Lindsay Wincherauk writes about what he sees; life, and a world filled with the seemingly unrelenting noise spinning around us daily. And, damn it, he sees a lot of life with his one working eye. At times, he leaves normal and trips into atmospheric—a pleasant break from the mundane.
Unique traits: I can place all 197 countries of the world in their right place on a map, but I have trouble remembering the name of the street one block away from my home of 20 years. Oh, yeah, I think I might be a kind man!
