TONIGHT! John Goldbach Launches THE DEVIL AND THE DETECTIVE 7pm!


Join us to celebrate the launch of Montreal author John Goldbach's debut novel, The Devil and the Detective! The author of the short story collection Selected Blackouts returns with a noir detective novel that's part Dashiell Hammett, part Samuel Beckett and part Charlie Chaplin. Goldbach will read selections from the novel and answer audience questions. Come sin with us!


Praise for Selected Blackouts: "[A] remarkable first book full of keenly observed characters and delightful comic invention. [...] [Goldbach's] prose and his well-constructed plots make his short stories into mini-novels, full of rich character development and the heart-searing pity that lies at the root of the best comedy" – Tom Sandborn, The Globe and Mail

The Devil and The Detective: "The world has hitherto been divided into plotters who wrote in shoddy sentences and linguistic aesthetes who wrote beautiful sentences but couldn't make anything happen on the page, no plot. Goldbach manages to do both – a thrilling plot and beautiful language. He has raised the bar for both murder mysteries and literary writing." – Josip Novakovich

Tonight, Thursday April 11th, 211 Bernard!
