The Hunt is a collection of postcards that tell the fragmented story of a nameless familyÕs search for the murderer of their mother. It is a narrative in miniature, a hunt ghost story as travel tale, a historical romance handwritten on the reverse of 63 antique postcards, each found for its geographic location from Newfoundland to British Columbia.The voice/text of The Hunt is parasitic in nature: it hovers, ghostly, upon the pastÕs discarded communication. Many of the postcards preserve their initial use: stamps, correspondence, and post office marks. Fragment upon fragment, The Hunt reveals another version of Canada?s history, read from East to West. The text on the reverse of one postcard relates the instance when the daughter enters the inside of a bird.
Jason Dickson is the author of Clearance (2002), The Hunt (2006) and is the proprietor of the Muskoka Bookhouse, an antiques and collectible bookshop in Bracebridge, Ontario.
