Coming July 2018
With his trademark wit, C.P. Boyko’s latest crop of stories explores power dynamics. An army doctor and an ambulance driver enter a civil war zone for very different reasons, new mothers face callous physicians, management and workers struggle for power in a dying factory, a high school teacher manouevres for popularity, two enemy platoons joke and plot and attempt to destroy one another, and disgruntled students occupy university administration offices.
Praise for C.P. Boyko
“Stealthy, seductive… A collection that in many ways… will provide thought-fodder, not to mention good old-fashioned pleasure, for months.” —The Montreal Gazette
“Mirthful, sly and intermittently caustic.” —Vancouver Sun
“Rich, funny… widely admired.” —Georgia Straight
“These stories are funny and sardonic, satirical, well-written, and keen… [Boyko’s] characters are larger-than-life, very funny, but more authentic than they first seem… we’ll enjoy laughing at them, and laugh at ourselves at the same time.” —San Francisco Book Review
