Overview

Winner of the 1994 McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award (Manitoba Writing and Publishing Awards). Blasphemer’s Wheel is a representative collection of Patrick Friesen’s work, including selections from The Shunning, Flicker and Hawk, Unearthly Horses and You Don’t Get to Be a Saint. “With his ­customary stateliness and ­elegance of mind, Friesen engages us to think ‘somewhere between yes and no’—a place, as it turns out, filled with the voices of friends. ”—Sharon Thesen
