Product Details

Praise

"A rich, dark and highly accomplished debut." —Ottawa Citizen

"Gardiner brings together many disparate subjects, including the legal entrapment of rats…the human fertility industry…sexual victims, what it is to be Canadian, Quebec separatism and Alberta’s idiosyncratic politics." —The Toronto Star

"[Gardiner’s] wry descriptions of motels, diners, truckstops and the eccentrics who inhabit them evoke Steinbeck in his hard-travelling days." —The Globe and Mail

The Dominion of Wyley McFadden is a first novel but it sure doesn’t feel like one. Gardiner’s writing is tight and sure…. The reason the novel works is because Gardiner has Wyley’s voice exactly rigth; he was born to talk and his story feels like something you would expect from W.O. Mitchell…. A promising novel…. Wyley McFadden, the hero of this, Scott Gardiner’s first novel is a man with a mission…Gardiner has a fine sense of atmostphere, whether it is in the camper or in a truckstop restaurant.” —Edmonton Journal
