White Lung

By (author): Grant Buday

A blackly comic new novel from Vancouver author Grant Buday, based on his eight glorious years working in a mass production bakery. Dickensian in magnitude, ‘White Lung’ is a sardonic portrait of B.C.’s racial conflicts and chaotic economy.

Buday’s writing is lean and crisp, thoroughly engaging, and incisive.” – Quill & Quire

“This is Vancouver novelist Grant Buday’s best book yet.” – Broken Pencil

Finalist, City of Vancouver Book Prize
