Hearth Wild: post cardiac banff

ISBN: 978-1-894345-29-3

Charles Noble's counter-novel is a minefield and motherlode of jest, memory and speculation. If Stephen Daedalus had been put to school with the Lutherans instead of the Jesuits, he might have devised this technique to portray his hometown, its inhabitants and his own evolution.

Noble's exploration of the literary and topographical culture of Banff, past and present, yields a narrative filled with wit, style and playful exuberance.

Peopled with a cast of characters taken from real life and transformed by Noble's capacious imagination, Hearth Wild mingles personal and social history with a unique, compelling fictive style.
