    Om Novelists

    Longlisted for the 2014 Frank O'Connor AwardNovelists: the soul of an age, certainly. Brilliant? Perhaps. Yet arent they also doddering, petulant, pedantic, knockkneed, skittish, and thunderingly insecureresentful, awkward, annoyingdemanding, deluded, and vexingly indifferent to reality? New from short fiction devote C.P. Boyko, Novelists is a comedy of manners (and manuscripts), rivalling Vanity Fair for its satirical wit though not, mercifully, for its length.PRAISE FOR NOVELISTS Proudly, gloriously, gleefully old-fashioned in their style and settings, these largely comic stories about the worst traits of artists are more serious than they at first seem: they depict the petty insecurities that fuel every creative act.Russell SmithIf you are a normal person, these stories, with their pitch-perfect satirical humour and their finely tuned sentences, will make you laugh out loud. If you are a writer, first you will squirm with recognition while envying his impressive vocabulary, his nimble grammar, and his startling imagery, and then youll laugh out loud.Diane SchoemperlenPRAISE FOR C.P. BOYKOReaders will enjoy the authors versatility, quirky (sometimes uproarious) sense of humor, sardonic view of the world, and fruitful imagination Libraries with any short-fiction readers should buy this book and keep an eye out for the next one.Booklist, starred reviewNothing short of astonishing.The WalrusKeep your eye on this young Canadian talent.ChatelaineStunning Boyko has an unstoppable imagination.The Globe & MailStealthy, seductive A collection that in many ways will provide thought-fodder, not to mention good old-fashioned pleasure, for months. The Montreal GazetteFans of satirical fiction will love this impeccably researched and unflinchingly intelligent. The National Post
