Synopsis:  Jake’s fallen hard for Genny—and now he’s bringing her home to meet the family. On the long trip to the prairies, and as he tours her around town, he amuses her with anecdotes from his childhood, and regales her with stories about the town’s founding (on land stolen from the Cree) and of the scoundrels and visionaries who shaped it. Yet he’s careful what he tells her. There are things he doesn’t want to acknowledge, even to himself. Genny, though, can see he’s hiding something, and is determined to uncover the secret that’s tearing him apart.

Poplar Lake is a darkly subversive novel, compelling, poignant, and multi-layered, whimsical and wry in observation, a tragicomedy rich with yearning, heartbreak, and love.
