His Little Douchebag & Other Stories is a collection of linked narratives set in the working-class community of Windsor, Ontario, from the 1950s to the present day. Pike gives us a gritty look at the lives of factory workers, cashiers, welfare recipients, and the parents and children of the baby-boomer generation. The links between these stories are teasingly subtle, illuminating the transitory nature of things. Steeped in the oral tradition of storytelling, Pike exhibits the daily experiences of blue-collar life to transcend stereotyped notions of character and dialogue towards an uninhibited sense of place and time.

Lisa Pike was born and raised in Windsor, Ontario. She completed her M.A. in English & Creative Writing at the University of Windsor, and her Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and Women & Gender Studies at the University of Toronto. Her fiction and poetry have appeared in numerous magazines and anthologies: Re: Generations: Canadian Women Poets in Conversation, ditch, the poetry that matters, CV2, The Writer's Block, The New Quarterly, and Whisky Sour City. She is the author of the novel, My Grandmother's Pill, and a poetry chapbook, Policeman's Alley. She lives in Toronto and is currently working on a second novel.
