Lucien and Nataa might have slipped toward love, if her past in Sarajevo hadn't caught up with her. Nataa finds work modeling for a painter in Toronto, but he is murdered. Nataa disappears that night, running for her life. Her vanishing is connected to the discovery of a video, secretly filmed in a small town in Bosnia and Herzegovina during the war. Butterfly is a novel that charts a controlled descent through the dark legacy of war and the underbelly of the global art scene ... into a world ruled by a desperate hope for impossible redemption.

John Delacourt is an Ottawa writer whose fiction has appeared in numerous publications in Canada and the U.S. Butterfly is his third novel. His criticism and political commentary has appeared in the Rover, the Ottawa Review of Books, Ottawa Citizen, iPolitics, the Hill Times and Policy magazine. He studied at the Humber School for Writers after graduating with an MA in English Literature from the University of Toronto.

"Butterfly is a taut, tight, and tense masterpiece. In this finely-cut jewel of a novel, John Delacourt's crystalline prose drives the heart-stopping story at just the perfect pace, leaving you no choice but to keep on turning the pages until you know, and feel, everything. A deeply satisfying read from a very talented writer."--Terry Fallis, two-time winner of the Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour
