Something dark and wacky this way comes! Eden Robinson's newest novel Son of a Trickster makes its way into Canadian bookstores this month


“If Raven and Trickster got a show on Netflix, no one could write it but Eden Robinson. Talking ravens, party drugs, deadbeat dads, murderous otters, Doctor Who—nobody brings together pop culture, indigenous culture and myth with more ferocity and humour. Son of a Trickster is my favourite book this year.”
— Annabel Lyon,
author of The Sweet Girl and The Golden Mean

“Eden Robinson is a masterful storyteller. Shimmering with deft prose, unforgettable characters, and haunting truths, Son of a Trickster reminds us that sometimes the surest way to solid ground is through believing in magic.”

“Absolutely electrifying. Kill the Father is one of those rare treasures: a page-turning thriller—in every sense of the phrase—that is also brilliantly nuanced and rich with insight into the complex and compelling minds of those, good and bad, who inhabit its pages. This novel is the new definition of a one-sitting read.”— JEFFERY DEAVER, New York Times bestselling author of the The Bone Collector and The Steel Kiss

Kill the Father - US cover

Kill the Father is an intense, gripping, and entirely unforgettable story—part psychological puzzle, part police procedural, and part conspiracy theory. Mr. Dazieri has written a thriller of the highest order. Highly recommended.”
— CHRISTOPHER REICH, New York Times bestselling author of the Numbered Account and Rules of Deception

“A mind-bending, stunningly original page-turner…In Dante and Colomba, Sandrone Dazieri has created two of the most memorable characters in modern crime fiction.”— JONATHAN KELLERMAN, internationally bestselling author of A Cold Heart and Dr. Death

“Ingenious…features a pair of protagonists with personal demons as unnerving as the vicious monster they’re pursuing.”
— JOHN VERDAN, internationally bestselling author of Think of a Number and Wolfe Lake

“Sandrone Dazieri's American debut is an epic tale that surprises at every turn—a twisty, mind-boggler that introduces not one but two memorable protagonists and hurls them into circumstances that threaten both their lives and sanity. The rollercoaster ride continues to the very last page, leaving me impatient for the sequel.”— JOSEPH FINDER, New York Times bestselling author of Guilty Minds and Suspicion

Yasuko Thanh won the Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize for her debut novel Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains.


Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains, by Yasuko Thanh "Straining under the colonial rule of the French at the turn of the twentieth century, Vietnam is rife with corruption, oppression, opium dens, and revolutionary cells, and an active guillotine dominates a Saigon square. With compelling narrative drive, Yasuko Thanh imbues Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains with atmosphere and resonance, and creates mesmerizing characters who undergo complex change—politically, socially, personally, sexually—as they are gathered into a vortex of intrigue and risk. The author is as fearless and as wise in reshaping the mystique of the revolutionary as she is in delineating a dramatic time and place in this elegant and tantalizing novel."
—Rogers Writers' Trust Fiction Prize Jurors Pasha Malla, Lauren B. Davis, & Trevor Ferguson

Eden Robinson "Eden Robinson is a master storyteller with an instantly recognizable style and a capacious sensibility that encompasses everything from traditional Haisla teachings to contemporary youth culture. Her vision is unflinching, her obsessions sometimes brutal, her observations visceral, yet at the same time all of her work is suffused with a deep empathy for her characters, and spiced by a tricksterish sense of humour that opens up new ways of understanding this land and its beautiful, damaged people. In a world where the legacies of colonial violence are alive and present every day, Robinson’s work resonates with crucial political and ethical questions that everyone needs to consider. This is vital, engaged, and artful writing that sticks in the memory and makes us think again about who, and where, we are."
—Writers' Trust Engel/Findley Jurors Warren Cariou, Linda Spalding, & Annabel Lyon
