I did a dangerous thing; I discovered NetGalley. And then I went exploring. And then I found all my favourite Canadian publishers. And now I have a lot of books I have to read or they’ll kick me off NetGalley.
I love the internet.
First up is Fugue States by Pasha Malla, which will be my first Pasha Malla. Premise: driven wild (or at least uneasy) by grief, two young men embark on “a Don Quixote-like quest” from Canada to Kashmir. I’m thinking motorcycles, shenanigans, a struggle with the idea of identity and home. I think this will probably be my review for next month’s Ottawa Review of Books, so stay tuned. (Have you explored the Ottawa Review of Books? It’s small and Canadian and I write for it!)
