Fox moves on quick and elegant feet through the terror and exhilaration of Winnipeg’s 1919 General Strike, the most turbulent period of the city’s history. In a novel of remarkably vivid, kinetic power, the collision of the wealthy and working classes after the First World War becomes a backdrop for the heady conflict between desire and human idealism.Winner of the McNally Robinson Book of the Year.
