Beschreibung

#039;Derry specializes in the most delightfully self-unaware characters. These are delicious portrayals of delusion.' Uptown'Derry's cohort of misanthropic, sexually repressed anti-heroes possesses a spooky ability to get under your skin.' Prairie Fire'Arrestingly witty.' Vue WeeklyThe return of a former lover saps a retired librarians faith in punctuation, a judge must compulsively narrate his neighbour into ignominy, and the glories of market analysis prove as deceptive as human connection when Trevor Spates visit to a stripper goes awry. Meanwhile, poor Tim Pine must face his coprophobia in a most public and lamentable office misadventure.Sentimental Exorcisms is a collection of tragicomic satire, latter-day-Victorian collisions of Nabokov and Proust. The men in these long short stories have grand designs and petty fears, or modest designs and grand fears. Desires, scapegoats, idylls, and obtrusive egos: the golden calves they cant quite bear to kill. With their ramparts crumbling around them, each mounts an exuberant defence in a vacuum of self-absorption.David Derry lives in Toronto. Having been seduced by farming, boat-building, and chauffeuring, and having flirted with academia, he more recently discovered the insular pleasure of drafting and amending contracts, where we find him today, working as a legal assistant. Sentimental Exorcisms is his first book.
