Editorial Reviews

`It's rural Indiana in the year 1900, and Dr. Swarthmore, a clergyman, attempts to sell doomsday to his fellow Hoosiers at 50 cents per doom. A first novel from Kingston, Ontario, resident Alexander Scala, Dr. Swarthmore is a coal-black diamond of a book -- deliciously satiric, studded with masterly turns of phrase and meaning, striking images and spectral revelations.'
