On a three-tiered stage in the Ontario countryside, the mellifluous voice of an auctioneer can induce grizzled farmers to buy broken shovels. His two sons help out with the business, but it’s his strangely mute young daughter who seduces auction-goers with her elaborate vintage costumes. When she disappears, the younger brother — now a Montreal film professor — begins a lifelong search that ultimately leads him to the silent, experimental cinema of Molly O.

In this tale of unshakeable dreams, the songs of Rodgers and Hart may contain secret messages, a country road seems to stretch timelessly into the distance and the firm earth in the backyard may well turn into quicksand. Molly O explores an unstable world where nothing is certain except what we hope for.

Born in Ottawa, and currently living in Montreal, Mark Foss attended Carleton University, where he earned degrees in journalism and film studies. His previous works include the novel Spoilers and the short story collection Kissing the Damned. His radio drama Higher Ground has been broadcast on CBC Radio.
