Metaphor and the Sacred

April 14, 2016

Discussed: 

My answer to a question at the Vancouver Writer's Festival Incite reading with Yann Martel at the Vancouver Public Library a couple of weeks ago. "For me the natural world is where I go to find the sacred, and that feeling that something is sacred is important in my life. I think that a religious sensibility is hard-wired into us, I don't think we have a choice, even if we're atheists, there is a part of our consciousness that transcends our day to day reality.

Publisher's Weekly Review - The Mercy Journals

March 25, 2016

Another very good early review. I like the way the reviewer described the book (except the last 3 words, but who's to say?)

Money quote: "Part cautionary tale, part survival narrative...Casper employs clear, concise prose that moves at a steady clip, and the exploration, through one man's account, of what it means to outlive one's purpose is tightly constructed."
