POWERHOUSE FINALE OF A TRILOGY WITH STRONG SALES: Everyone wants to see what happens to Jared!
#1 NATIONAL BESTSELLER
“[P]ure enjoyment…. Robinson manages to skillfully pull off a series that accomplishes a whole number of things at the same time: this novel—and the trilogy as a whole—is a thrilling, magic-realist adventure story; a compelling domestic novel that explores the various kinds of family…a grim ride into sadistic darkness…and wickedly funny, hard-edged and sardonic, tender and emotionally true.” —Toronto Star
“[E]pic and exhilarating…. Return of the Trickster offers a surreal escape into a familiar but fantastical world…keep[ing] up a steady rhythm of suspense and danger, building towards an inevitable and satisfying showdown…. Never a minimalist storyteller, Robinson takes a stacked cast of supernatural characters with dizzying intergenerational grudges and adds a few more…never abandon[ing] her sense of humour.” —Vancouver Sun
“[Return of the Trickster] gleefully revs into supernatural and psychedelic action and keeps up that pace through to its giddy final battle…. Robinson’s voice is like no other…[with her] dry humour and penchant for delivering an outrageous detail as a comic aside….[U]nmistakable.” —Quill & Quire
“The last book in Eden Robinson’s lauded Trickster trilogy is everything at once, in a good way. It’s a page-turner dense with history and lore: gruesome…then suddenly hilarious.” —Chatelaine
PRAISE FOR EDEN ROBINSON
“Eden Robinson was born to be a writer.” —The Tyee
“[Robinson’s work] straddles the line between violent trauma and humour and tenderness so gracefully…. [Robinson] expresses the internal compass of someone’s mind in such a real way.” —Emilee Gilpin, National Observer
“What [draws] me to her [is] the darkness that exists along a remarkable sense of humour…. I have an attraction to darkness in a story that is literary as much as it is cultural. It comes…from her literary heroes, like Edgar Allan Poe and Stephen King.” —Nick Mount, Quill & Quire
“[Robinson] isn’t afraid of reaching into those dark corners…. [T]here’s this kind of life to her and her writing…. I think that combination of being unafraid to look at really important and dark themes, but also approach it with this joy and life is a combination I think that’s really affecting.” —Jason Purcell, Canadian Literature Centre, Metro
