Meet the Garneau boys, triplets from small-town Ontario. Daniel the "eldest" is gay, and moves to Toronto with his best friend Karen to attend university. Eventually, he meets David, a bike mechanic whose Catholic Italian mother talks to her dead husbands. Their chemistry is immediate, but Daniel is still drawn to his ex-boyfriend Marcus, a performance artist whose grandfather was a book-burning Nazi. A Boy at the Edge of the World is a rollicking dramedy that explores the compulsive and (ultimately) universal human pursuit of intimacy, sex, and love.

David Kingston Yeh holds his MA in cultural sociology from Queen’s University, is an alumnus of George Brown Theatre School, and attended Advanced Post Graduate Studies in Expressive Arts at the European Graduate School in Saas Fee, Switzerland. He works as a counsellor and educator in downtown Toronto, Canada. David resides up the street from a circus academy, along with his husband and a family of racoons. His short fiction has appeared in numerous magazines. He has published two novels: A Boy at the Edge of the World (2018) and Tales From the Bottom of My Sole (2020). He has been listed among "writers to watch" by CBC Books. He will complete his third novel,The B-Side of Daniel Garneau in 2021.
