Description

In experimental lit veteran Brian Dedora’s third novel, prose fragments and narrative threads come in and out of focus as, on a winter’s night, a reveller in an upscale Toronto restaurant begins the most dangerous of things: a journey into memory.

As this layered, undulating novel explores class tensions, a family in disintegration, and how the effects of sexual abuse wind through generations, and while cameos by voyageurs, cowboys, Black Robe, and Grey Owl flicker to life and vanish again, the tragic story of the unnamed Her emerges in verbal snapshots.
