Distillery Songs

    By Mike Spry

  Canada $19.95   

Mike Spry's debut collection of fiction revels in his characters' idiosyncrasies and shortcomings in ten stories filled with wit and reverie.

In Distillery Songs' original and compelling narratives, dogs smoke, monkeys pop pills, cats are humourless, and Jesus drinks hot toddies. With a voice that Vallum magazine calls "a more obsessive, quirky, and pop-cultured version of Charles Bukowski," Spry confronts issues of love, loss, addiction, and desire in a manner that is at once funny, imaginative, and heartbreaking.

Praise for Distillery Songs

"Spry is nimble. Spry is quick. Spry is lively, surprising, fun in a disturbing way and apparently incapable of writing a boring sentence. Distillery Songs sounds exactly like itself and not much like anybody else. These stories feel brand-new and shiny and full of life." — Kevin Canty, author of Everything

"Distillery Songs are disturbed asymmetries of darkly entertaining weirditude, and if you like darkly entertaining weirditude you should read them. Their author, Mr. Spry, is spry in surprising ways." — Padgett Powell
