Brilliant? Perhaps. Yet arent they also doddering, petulant, pedantic, knockkneed, skittish, and thunderingly insecure--resentful, awkward, annoying--demanding, deluded, and vexingly indifferent to reality?

New from short fiction devotee C.P. Boyko, Novelists is a comedy of manners (and manuscripts), rivalling Vanity Fair for its satirical wit... though not, mercifully, for its length. PRAISE FOR NOVELISTSProudly, gloriously, gleefully old-fashioned in their style and settings, these largely comic stories about the worst traits of artists are more serious than they at first seem: they depict the petty insecurities that fuel every creative act.--Russell SmithIf you are a normal person, these stories, with their pitch-perfect satirical humour and their finely tuned sentences, will make you laugh out loud.

If you are a writer, first you will squirm with recognition while envying his impressive vocabulary, his nimble grammar, and his startling imagery, and then youll laugh out loud.--Diane SchoemperlenPRAISE FOR C.P. BOYKOReaders will enjoy the authors versatility, quirky (sometimes uproarious) sense of humor, sardonic view of the world, and fruitful imagination ...

Libraries with any short-fiction readers should buy this book and keep an eye out for the next one.--Booklist, starred reviewNothing short of astonishing.--The WalrusKeep your eye on this young Canadian talent.--ChatelaineStunning ... Boyko has an unstoppable imagination.--The Globe & MailStealthy, seductive ... A collection that in many ways ... will provide thought-fodder, not to mention good old-fashioned pleasure, for months.-- The Montreal GazetteFans of satirical fiction will love this ...

impeccably researched and unflinchingly intelligent. --The National Post
