A Small silence : a novel
By Jumoke Verissimo
Prof is an ex-prisoner, activist and retired academic, who resolves to live a life of darkness after his release from prison. He holes up in his apartment, pushing away friends and family, and embraces his status as an urban legend in the neighbourhood until a knock at the door shakes his existence. Join us at the Library on Feb. 29 for an event with the author and Edmonton Journal columnist Lisa Martin.
Small game hunting at the local Coward Gun Club : a novel
