This extraordinarily innovative and expansive painter, photographer, writer and musician used the letter as a form to explore and develop a domestic aesthetic that addresses the daily life of the artist at work, the quotidian correspondences of business, community and the imagination. The narrative threads through these missives deliver a gripping biotext of a racialized and hyphenated Canadian artist 'leaping cultural fences' and rapping out to the 'myriad extension' of the mundane self...." --Fred Wah, author of Diamond Grill & Faking It & Governor General's Award recipient.

There's that single-motherhood business, for one, and then there's the fact that she's netted a $10-million estate from her adoptive mother, Heaven, whose disinherited birth son, the tofu-eating pseudo-guru Francis, seems weirdly okay with it.....She also, through flashbacks, reveals Saff's complicated past in Sierra Leone--her troubles with Halla's father, the surgeon Oscar; her attraction to Joseph, a beautiful, mysterious African--while weaving quite a present-day plot. Back in Sierra Leone, Joseph may be put to death for treason, while in Malibu, Francis is cooking up a plot to get his mom's property back. Lennon's debut is a winning mix of humor and suspense...... ; 8vo
