Skeet Love

5:15 PM - 5:45 PM

Skeet Love

Set in near-future Toronto, Skeet Love tells the story of Shane, a conspiracy theorist and aspiring rapper; Nina, his girlfriend; and Brit, the couple’s lover. Wildly suspecting the threesome is under surveillance by a secretive religious cult, Shane moves the group to seek refuge with his father, a smuggler and taxidermist. And then the truth really gets weird. Craig Francis Power’s third novel is an uber-cool drug and sex-fuelled critique of the world we think we know.
