Description

At an open-air clinic, the enigmatic twist of Dr. Mahlon Locke sets events into motion that trickle down through time until they become a relentless flood: An unrepentant dreamer with one short leg finds solace in beautiful shoes. A celebrated author points to a shelf of useless words and a loaded gun. A sharp-tongued scriptgirl clings to the scent of Easter lilies. Guided by ephemera, a young woman reconnects these spoiled lives in a sensuous bid to save herself. Punctuated by unforgiving factoids and vintage postcards, Spoilers confronts the fleeting nature of fame, the human impact of progress, and the consequences of choosing art over love. ABOUT THE AUTHOR: Mark Foss is the author of Kissing the Damned, a collection of linked stories nominated for the 2006 ReLit Award. His work has also appeared in such literary journals as The Fiddlehead, The New Quarterly, B&A New Fiction and subTerrain, as well as Canadian and American anthologies. Spoilers, his first novel, was partly inspired by his radio drama, Higher Ground, broadcast on CBC in 2001. He divides his time between Ottawa and Montreal.
