Longlisted for the Sunburst Award for Adult Fiction

The highly anticipated debut short story collection by Journey Prize finalist Seyward Goodhand.

Even That Wildest Hope
bursts with vibrant, otherworldly characters—wax girls and
gods-among-men, artists on opposite sides of a war, aimless plutocrats
and anarchist urchins—who are sometimes wondrous, often grotesque, and
always driven by passions and yearnings common to us all. Each story is
an untamed territory unto itself: where characters are both victims and
predators, the settings are antique and futuristic, and where our
intimacies—with friends, lovers, enemies, and even our food—reveal a
deeply human desire for beauty and abjection. Stylistic and primordial, Even That Wildest Hope
is a chaotic and always satisfying fabulist journey in the baroque
tradition of Angela Carter, Carmen Maria Machado, and Ted Chiang.

“Read any sentence in this collection and you will know that Seyward Goodhand is a rare and original talent.”—David Bezmozgis

“It’s a relief to find this kind of daring in Canadian fiction.”CNQ

“Seyward Goodhand can whip up a hell of a story… Yes read it.”—Lolly K Dandeneau
