Editorial Reviews


'A postmodern novel about the members of a Montreal book club who find themselves involuntarily acting out The Epic of Gilgamesh may not sound like a crowd-pleaser, but playwright and banjo enthusiast Sean Dixon's debut novel has been a surprise success, netting many delighted readers in Canada, as well as a six-figure two-book deal in the UK. The pleasure of the book comes from Dixon's deft handling of his weightier literary themes, making it reminiscent of the kind of irrepressibly mischievous and literary novels that John Barth used to write. Call it populist pointdexterism.' – Quill & Quire

We read this book for book club thinking it would be topical but it was universally agreed that it was the worst book we had ever read & even after reading it we still couldn't understand what it was about.
