Thanks to the author for bringing this book to our attention.
First it’s about climate change and the hostility Canada has shown toward those wishing to do something about it. It’s also about the role of artists at a time of political crisis. And it’s psychological, exploring the mind of a virtual prisoner.

In this surreal and lyric debut novel, an environmentalist accused by a North American petro-state of "economic terrorism" takes refuge in a compound for vagrants. Surrounded by a variety of social and political outcasts--dubious charity providers, a spiritual healer, a man with two right eyes, contraband exotic species, and a theatrical company that may be a front for prostitution--the "terrorist" gradually embraces the exile of his improvised home, a shipping container, where the division between imagination and external reality will irrevocably blur.
