DARK HUMOUR & LINGUISTIC VERVE
launch for Involuntary Bliss from Book Thug > OCT 17
Celebrate the new novel from Toronto independent publisher's Book Thug. Type Books is pleased to be launching Devon Code's debut novel, Involuntary Bliss .
ABOUT THE BOOK
A bond between three
friends forms over a mutual fascination with an obscure Peruvian novella and is
fractured by an accidental death. From the streets of Montreal’s Plateau and
Latin Quarter to the ruins of Machu Picchu, award-winning author Devon Code’s Involuntary Bliss traces this tragic
affinity with dark humour and linguistic verve.
Advance Praise for Involuntary Bliss:
"Involuntary Bliss is a marvel.” —Alissa York, author of The Naturalist
“Even when he literally lets us admire his impressive scaffolding, Code remains a natural storyteller with a clear, urgent voice. This is a sophisticated and impressive debut.” —Jonathan Bennet, author of The Colonial Hotel
