9781897178867: The Prescription Errors

In Charles Demers' darkly comic debut novel, Daniel—an East Vancouver obsessive-compulsive—is forced to evaluate his self-absorption against the trials and traumas of others. As he tries to submerge himself in a solitary, Karl Marx-inspired research project in the basement archives of the medical library, Daniel watches his family flounder at the center of a free-speech fight for a children's book about a same-sex relationship—between turtles.

Charles Demers is a writer, political activist, and comedian. His comedy is featured regularly on CBC Radio, and he is co-host of The CityNews List, a comic news show. He lives in East Vancouver with his wife.

Review:

"Charles Demers writes wittily, unguardedly, and often downright scandalously, until he arrives, in The Prescription Errors, with a novel that is as much about an individual's uneasy condition as it is about a society's deeper illness. Read this book if you're prepared for fiction's equivalent to a raucous stand-up performance, if you're prepared for a merciless send-up of social pieties, and most of all, if you're prepared to confront and enjoy the strangest of symptoms." -- David Chariandy, author of Soucouyant
