Enjoy a morning of absurdity. Chan Koonchung’s biting satire is set in modern China sometime in the near future. “So far the Chinese authorities have not come to me,” says Chan, who lives in Beijing. Scathing political satire is safer for Linda Svendsen, whose satirical romp is inspired by recent events in Canadian federal politics. Emily Schultz turns the blonde cliché on its head as deadly blondes terrorize New Yorkers. Anne Fleming’s short story collection, Gay Dwarves of America, brings compassion to those who have been treated as carnival creatures. Finalist for the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour, Shari Lapeña tackles the meaning and relevance of poetry.
