In the second novel from Sean Dixon, a rising-stakes vendetta develops between a young rose seller and a building developer, spiralling outward to envelop family, lovers, friends, landlords, wormpickers, window cleaners, Vietnamese gangsters, stand-up bass players and tour-bus guides, involving subway accidents, arson, drainpipes, buried rivers, backhoe wars, stretch limos, ultrasound technicians, poorly fitted windows and an aubergine Saab.
Sean Dixon is a novelist, playwright and banjo player. His first novel, The Girls Who Saw Everything, is about a young women’s book club in Montreal that opts to read the first book ever written, on its original stone tablets. It’s been published all over the English-speaking world and translated into Romanian. He is the author of two books for young readers, The Feathered Cloak and The Winter Drey, and many plays. Currently he is writing a new play involving Ovid and the banjo.
