Publisher’s Synopsis

Mercury Retrograde is an engagingly provocative incursion into new Canadian writing. At the heart of this collection of short fiction beats the determination of the seeker. This is writing that enters contradiction, but refuses alienation. These are characters beset by falsifying images who nevertheless find their artistic power; characters who push down the walls of convention with humour and wit.
