Product Details


Satellite Love is one of those rare and affecting novels that will leave you breathless, charmed, and deeply thoughtful. A beautiful rumination on sentience, imagination, impermanence and friendship, Genki Ferguson has written a story that lives on the precarious and satisfying edge of melancholy and exuberance.” — Ruth Ozeki, author A Tale for the Time Being

“A charming, strange and occasionally unsettling story about isolation, obsession, faith and connection that confronts heady questions about consciousness and what it means to be a fully aware, sentient being. . . . An impressively assured debut.” Calgary Herald
“A beautiful debut novel. . . .Maybe an unconventional novel about the perils of loneliness is the perfect read for these unconventional, lonely times. Maybe we need the detached musings of a satellite in love, looking outside in, to remind us of what it means to be human—especially when our sense of self seems to be slipping from our grasp.” Stacey May Fowles, Open Book
“This debut unconventional novel from indie bookseller Genki Ferguson is one of the most tender books I’ve read recently.” Rupert McNally, bookseller at Ben McNally Books, Toronto Life
“A strange, sweet, and heartbreaking story about loneliness, difference, and what it means to be human. . . . It’s a tender and beautiful read. . . . Ferguson’s debut is truly a bittersweet, and stunning story. A weird and wonderful meditation on the painfully human desire to believe in something greater than us.” SheDoesTheCity
“A tender tragedy that highlights the values of connection and being present while asking what it means to truly exist and be real.” Politics and Prose Bookstore Staff Pick
“I loved the beautifully realized characters. I loved the interplay between memory and imagination. . . . And the writing was exquisite. Yes, I really loved this book. New favorite author!” Jo Owens, author of A Funny Kind of Paradise

“With themes of loneliness, faith, and connection, Satellite Love is a gorgeous and deeply moving story.” Daily Hive

“A mystical story about loneliness, friendship, and the human need for connection. . . .  The facility with which Ferguson captures the cadence and tone of each [of his characters’ voices] allows the prose to trip effortlessly off the page. As a result, the reader is invited to melt into the narrative. Satellite Love tackles the big questions: What does it mean to exist? Do our actions (or inaction) have any impact? Is there life after this life? Is anyone looking out for us? These universal questions lay heavy on the hearts of our characters, and so too for the reader, but Ferguson confronts them head-on through the lens of philosophy, spirituality, and faith with charm, humour, poignancy, and thoughtfulness. This is a lovely debut with a lasting impression.” Prairie Flower Reads

“Heartbreaking, spellbinding, beautiful. Satellite Love is an unusual and moving novel. . . . I found this book to be just breathtaking. It speaks to the devastation that bullying and neglect can cause, while highlighting the mind’s capacity to protect itself at all [costs]. . . . A sweet, yet tragic and lyrical novel.” Worn Pages and Ink
