Luke Beirne will discuss passivity, loyalty and literature in times of political upheaval. Foxhunt arrives just as a new Cold War is closing in. 

 

“A remarkable first novel by a brilliant young writer.” David Adams Richards 

1949: Milne Lowell, a Canadian writer, moves to London from Montreal to edit a magazine dedicated to cultural freedom. His colleagues include Marguerite Allard, a French-Canadian anarchist; Eric Felmore, an American novelist; and Carson Ward, a British poet.

Initially, the group is enthusiastic about the championship of freedom, however, uncertainty grows as unsettling and surprising encounters begin to unfold and the peripheral violence of the Cold War closes in.

Foxhunt is an atmospheric exploration of passivity, loyalty, and literature in times of political upheaval. Firmly entrenched in the literary milieu of the era, it carries the reader through shell-shocked streets with suspense and intrigue.
