In our 2019 Fall Art Preview (Sep 19-25 issue), Coast writer/certified bookworm Jade Nauss summed up Jaime Burnet’s debut novel: “Burnet introduces readers to a cast of characters that rivals an Atom Egoyan film: There’s a body-piercer, a grieving widower, a young woman in love, a grandmother suffering from Alzheimer’s and a Mi’kmaw survivor of the residential school system. These characters’ lives intersect in a story about history, obsession, and gentrification set in the north end of Halifax. If that’s not enough of a reason to go grab this book as soon as it’s released, how about this: One of the characters has an affair with a ghost.” Meet the writer at this reading-and-signing sesh.
