  • Short Description

In The Sunday Book, Michael Trussler uses memoir to excavate and explore a range of inner lives, all lived at different speeds. With essays touching on the meaning of the Holocaust in the twenty-first century to confronting the complexities of being a parent in the Anthropocene, Trussler?s interconnected essays are united by his lived experience with a rare learning disability. The Sunday Book freshly engages with fundamental existential problems such as free will and contingency, all the while providing an original take on our contemporary moment.

Michael Trussler writes poetry, short stories, and creative non-fiction. He is also a photographer. He?s published various books, most recently Rare Sighting of a Guillotine on the Savannah (Mansfield Press, 2021). His prize-winning work has appeared in domestic and international anthologies and journals. His collection of short stories, Encounters, won the Book of the Year and City of Regina Awards from the Saskatchewan Book Awards in 2006. Accidental Animals, a poetry collection, was shortlisted for the same awards in 2007. He teaches English at the University of Regina.

?The Sunday Book is a beautifully written, acutely observed memoir that gives us an unflinching glimpse into one mans?s journey through middle-age, depression, anxiety and modern life. A poignant examination of aging and loss that encompasses time, metaphysics and art.??Don Gillmor and Alexandra Shimo, 2020 Saskatchewan Writers Guild competition for nonfiction citation
