Small things is a book of mini-anti-essays, part of Sky Gilbert's project to dismantle and challenge the rigid classifications of genre, thus challenging 21st century notions of truth. Inspired by Oscar Wilde, Foucault, and the post-structuralist project, the small writings in small things are story, essay, and memoir combined. They question the notion that an essay is necessarily fact, or fair opinion, or even informed opinion, while at the same time challenging the dictum that fiction might necessarily be free of didacticism, or at least, ideas.

Sky Gilbert is a professor, theatre director and drag queen extraordinaire. He has written seven novels, three books of poetry and a memoir. He has won numerous awards for his theatre work. In 2014, Guernica Editions published Compulsive Acts: Essays, Interviews, Reflections on the Works of Sky Gilbert. He lives in Hamilton.
