Fiction. Short Stories. Women's Studies. Bursting with vibrant, otherworldly characters—wax girls, gods among men, artists on opposite sides of a war, aimless plutocrats, and anarchist urchins. EVEN THAT WILDEST HOPE is a chaotic, satisfying, and fabulist debut from one of Canadian fiction's bright new lights, in the baroque tradition of Angela Carter, Carmen Maria Machado, and Ted Chiang.
