"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

The Goon Book Launch

My publisher has informed me that copies of THE GOON will arrive at my house at some point today...am excited to finally get my hands on a copy.

I will be launching THE GOON at the Bourbon Quarter Restaurant & Bar in Saint John, NB on Saturday, November 27...It will be a nice little affair, very informal; I'll say a few words and read a few passages then chat with everyone who comes.
