In a near-future New York subject to an increasingly hostile government, Laek, a non-conformist history teacher, and Janie, a community lawyer, are trying to live good and useful lives. After Laek is badly injured in a brutal confrontation with the police, they are forced to leave their home and loved ones behind, fleeing across the border by bicycle with their two young children. In a Montréal that the future has also transformed, they face new challenges: convincing the authorities to grant them refugee status and integrating into Québec society. Will they find safety in their new homes? Told from the points of view of the four main characters, Cycling to Asylum, longlisted for the Sunburst Award for Canadian Fiction of the Fantastic, is a unique work of interstitial fiction from an exciting new author.
