Kerfuffle by Dorothy Ellen Palmer


A funny book about the Toronto 2010 G20 protests that includes a talking cat?
A novel that finds humour in sword stealing, unplanned pregnancy, and surviving loss?
An OwnVoices novel where disabled improvisors share the stage with abled comrades?
Kerfuffle is all this and more.
Jumping on and off stage, the diverse, five-member improv troupe called Kerfuffle make sense and nonsense of their complex lives and the 2010 Toronto G20 protests. Uncertain which player is her baby daddy, nine-months-pregnant Nellie Wolfe wields her crutch as both prop and weapon to hunt him down. She bands with feminist friends to teach the troupe's male members about the responsible use of their members. From hidden weapons to Jesus Toast, simmering personal and political secrets build to an explosive on-stage reveal. It's an inside-Anarchy exposé of G20's crucible moments from black balaclavas to a burning police car to being kettled, incarcerated, and freed to continue the struggle. Satire at its best, it offers both belly laughs and a demand for justice.
