"From an emergency room in Calgary, where an intern hears his poorly timed joke about suicide, Zan winds up on the psychologist's couch. But the doctor's efforts to investigate Zan's mental state are constantly stymied by his misfiring memory, his wry delivery, and his novelist's tendency to embellish. Is he misremembering, misrepresenting, crafting a better story - or all of the above? Through the streets of Strike-era Winnipeg, Toronto during the Depression, and the 1980s Calgary of Zan's new life, Dave Margoshes's compellingly unreliable narrator treats the reader to a magnificent meditation on aging, family ties, faith, and the liquid concept of the truth."--Publisher's description.
