Product description


"Sizzles forward. . . . Van Herk's descriptions are compact, and drenched in indefatigable and passionate adoration. . . . Combines the light, exuberant handiness of good mystery writing with a perfect vertiginous stillness reminiscent of Samuel Beckett's novels."
Globe and Mail

"A brave novel . . . a remarkable achievement. . . . An indelible record of planned erasure, a homage to life written in the vocabulary of death. It is about contradiction, and it is contradictory; it is restless without being relentless. It is disquietingly beautiful and hauntingly articulate about belonging and love, and about the connectedness of stories and writing and life and death."
Books in Canada

"A subtle and rewarding novel."
Quill & Quire

"Van Herk can expertly delight and stimulate the intellect, with elegant phrasing, witty theoretical discussions and allusions, and ornate flourishes."
Calgary Herald

"fascinating and tender."
