Main Description
"Stuart Ross is an amazing talent. In Henry Kafka he's managed to create a landscape removed from personal memory and historical connectedness and yet whose characters are filled with passion and humour. What we have here is Millennium Now!- Stuart Ross style- fictions that are deliciously black, and at times deliciously funny."- Rick Salutin "Less an homage to Kafka than a re-experiencing, in the Canada in the 1990s, of Kafka's sense of how stark, astounding, terrifying, exhilarating and utterly contigent a life can feel. The stories and images cohabit cheerfully and unconnectedly, then they all end up oddly together in the book's final line (No peeking.)"
