Lost Dogs

In this darkly funny debut from Lucie Pagé, characters collide in unexpected ways as they search to create meaning in their lives.

A university English sessional teacher searches for his missing blind pit bull, not entirely aware that his relationship is coming unravelled. Katherine, his girlfriend, pays far more attention to her walk-on role in an alternative theatre production. Fourteen-year-old Becca struggles to get her mother’s attention, while her mother provides calorie-wise snacking and fashion advice and dates Becca’s psychologist. Karl fails to control his embarrassing and shameful bad habit at his dead-end telemarketing job.

Pagé weaves together narratives that speak of people adrift in the conflicting tides of the first decades of the twenty-first century in a novel that echoes the works of Lynda Barry.
