Words in Edgewise – December

November 22, 2010


This month Words in Edgewise proudly presents:

Bruce Johnson – Firmament:

Words in Edgewise is very proud to present Bruce Johnson, Curator of Contemporary Art at The Rooms Provincial Art Gallery by day, and novelist by night, reading from his debut novel Firmament. What began as his dissertation for the Graduate Program in Humanities several years ago has become a highly anticipated novel published by Gaspereau Press (of Joanna Skibsrud’s Giller Prize winning The Sentimentalists infamy).

200 years, 13 stories, 1 cove. Firmament is not the historical novel you might expect. It presents a Newfoundland you may not recognize. Spanning two centuries in a small Trinity Bay outport, it weaves a delicate web of the everyday with the unseen and outworldy. Firmament offers a place where the grit of the mundane intersects with the mystery of human desires, dreams and memory.

Prior to this year’s publication, Firmament was shortlisted for the 2007 Fresh Fish Award for Emerging Writers (WANL) as well as the 2007 Metcalfe-Rooke Award (Biblioasis).
