Synopses & Reviews
Fiction. Left to his own devices in real places around the world, the main character of these stories encounters an intractable dramatis personae: wild-eyed watch vendors and dulcet-voiced dead people, ancient opticians and death-metal beauticians, aggressive pigs and recalcitrant ponies, heavy-hearted tour guides and light-fingered taxi drivers, not to mention a wayward company of fellow travellers and correspondents. Along the way he deploys a gamut of gadgets, including some astonishingly inventive literary devices. AIRPORT VERSION is a revised, expanded edition of MY OWN DEVICES, which was shortlisted for the 2003 Quebec Writers Federation Award for Best First Book, as well as the Relit Award for Short Fiction.
