Future You uses a time machine to drop in on Present You. The two of you go on a bender and decide that the only way to fix the pathetic squalor of your regrettable lives is to visit Past You to keep you from making the mistakes that will lead him to your inevitable regret. But past you seems to be crushing it, and in attempting to protect him from becoming the future yous, you make things worse. Much worse. With me so far? Good. It gets weirder.

This book is a fun ride, so I will let you discove

There is perhaps no greater trope used in science fiction than time travel, and there is perhaps no greater reason for traveling in time than if the past and future conflagrate to create an insufferable shitstorm a hero must rectify in the present.

In that sense, I Ain't Got No Home In This World Anymore, third installment of Mike Sauve’s satirical series set in the fictional city of Lac-Sainte-Catherine, makes sense.

The story’s hero - or more aptly anti-hero, Sam McQuiggan - is a thirty-somethin

I honestly had no clue what I was going to get with this story. It was pretty much a story of how a guy can just keep messing up his life, with time travel and a future self of his to add more stupidity to the mix. They went back in time to fix his mistakes, but the mistakes happened because of who he is as a person. Only when he changed who he was, was when things started going right for him. There is a lot of mention of sex, drugs and what not to be aware of that.

That all being said, I laughed

Mike Sauve’s I Ain’t Got No Home in This World Anymore is a wise and brilliant time-traveling romp that launches us back to the early aughts and nearly 50 years into the future. As the two protagonists (the same man at different ages) try to prevent their past wrongs and re-relish the sweetest moments of their youths in the Canadian town of Lac-Sainte-Catherine, we realize we don’t really get better or smarter with age; we just become more deeply human. Tight writing, hilarious happenings, and c ...more

PW Starred: This time travel farce reads like a Philip K. Dick plot as channeled by a delirious Hunter S. Thompson. Sam McQuiggan is a divorced drunk earning minimum wage at the local Good Feels Fitness gym. Things can’t get worse, but they suddenly get strange when Sam is visited by a wayward alternate future version of himself. The two Sams hit it off, binging on booze, crack, and fast food. Reflecting on how their lives went so horribly wrong, the two hatch a crazed plan: they will travel bac ...more
