Coming Soon: Poplar Lake

Coming in the fall of 2018:  Poplar Lake, from Now or Never Publishing .

Now or Never Publishing produces works by new and established authors from across Canada. Since 2005, NON has published 45 original titles, and its catalogue continues to grow with its annual spring and fall list releases. NON is a member of the Association of Canadian Publishers and the Literary Press Group of Canada.

Publisher Chris Needham commented in 2017 on NON’s acquisition of Poplar Lake: “Poplar Lake is a darkly subversive novel, compelling, poignant, and multi-layered, whimsical and wry in observation, a feat of imagination—and Ron Thompson’s voice is honest and assured in the telling. This book is going to resonate with readers when it hits bookstores next fall.”

About Poplar Lake:

A young writer brings his girlfriend home to meet his family, introducing her to the vivid, sometimes dark history of his prairie hometown, while concealing the painful secrets of his own past.

Poplar Lake is a darkly satiric tragicomedy about families and relationships and the day-to-day lies that sustain them.

If Guy Vanderhaegh and Margaret Laurence had a love child, it would be Poplar Lake. Little Big Man would be its godfather, and M. Night Shyamalan would direct the movie adaptation.
