Book Launch: David Homel’s A HOUSE WITHOUT SPIRITS

29 September at 19:00 21:00 EDT

Join Véhicule Press to celebrate the launch of David Homel’s latest novel A HOUSE WITHOUT SPIRITS. Hosted by Esplanade Books editor Dimitri Nasrallah, the event will feature a reading by the author and conversation about the novel with special guest Shelley Pomerance.
***
When Paul is hired to write a monograph of the Montreal photographer John Marchuk, he assumes he’ll be able to turn over the eccentric project in a matter of weeks. Little does he know that over the next few months his visits with Marchuk, in a house stuffed with boxes stacked floor to ceiling with his life’s archive, will expose an emptiness in his own home.
In A House Without Spirits, Homel delivers some of his most memorable characters to date—reclusive artists, disaffected life partners, wandering ghosts, cult-affiliated nuns—in a contemporary Montreal noir that reveals how much we learn about ourselves when we begin to ask questions of others.
***
David Homel is the author of nine novels and a memoir, as well as a series of books for younger readers co-written with Marie-Louise Gay. A prize- winning writer and translator, he has worked in documentary film, print and radio journalism. He lives in Montreal.
