Spadework was Timothy Findley’s final novel before his death in June 2002. An electric word play of infidelity and morality, it is fitting that the novel is set in Stratford, the town where Findley began his career as an actor. Now in a PerennialCanada edition, Spadework will join Findley’s wonderful body of work, a collection to be enjoyed again and again.

Known for his gift in plumbing the depths of the human condition, Findley digs deep in Spadework with a cast of characters, each one motivated by addictions and ambitions, each one very alone. Set in the steamy summer of 1998, events such as the Lewinsky scandal, a hostage-taking in Peru and a severed phone line connect—and disconnect—a story singed by lust, power, adultery and ambition. A bestseller in cloth and a smash hit in mass market, Spadework’s Perennial edition will appeal to Findley’s legion of literary fans.
