FINALIST FOR THE MANITOBA BOOK AWARDS'' MARGARET LAURENCE AWARD FOR FICTION AND THE EILEEN MCTAVISH SYKES AWARD FOR BEST FIRST BOOK

The highly anticipated debut short story collection by Journey Prize finalist Seyward Goodhand.

Even That Wildest Hope bursts with vibrant, otherworldly characters-wax girls and gods-among-men, artists on opposite sides of a war, aimlessplutocrats and anarchist urchins-who are sometimes wondrous, often grotesque, and always driven by passions and yearnings common to us all.

Stylistic and primordial, Even That Wildest Hope is a chaotic and always satisfying fabulist journey in the baroque tradition of Angela Carter, Carmen Maria Machado, and Ted Chiang.
