A day-in-the-life novel — but what a day, what a life! Peter Dubé's first novel, Hovering World, moves effortlessly from sunlight to midnight and far beyond, in passages that are by turns haunting and haunted, surreal and erotic. The arrival of a photo of an angel sets off a quest of sorts, and along the way we encounter a general named Disarray, essays in art theory, moments of passionate obsession in both the streets of the city and the 'opaque corridors' of a gay sauna.

Hovering World is queer in all the best senses of the word — non-conformist, eccentric, dissenting, crazed, aberrant and, of course, invaluable. An unforgettable debut.
—Will Aitken, author of Realia
