The Perfect Archive is the story of an archivist who moves beyond his role to become an author of texts on archival theory. In his work, he processes the flow and retention of government information, and he begins to question the very nature of a "pure and accurate" archive. He is embroiled in a complex story that sends him into hiding, engages him in love, and has him grappling with tyranny, injustice, the suppression of information, and the strength and the futility of resistance, except in the form of poetry.

Paul Lisson was born in Hamilton, Ontario's gritty north end beside the Coca-Cola bottling plant, where the sound of the bottles was like the rattling of bones. He is descended from a long line of union card carrying steel workers who played in bagpipe bands. Paul is a poet, archivist, and librarian, and co-founder of Hamilton Arts & Letters magazine.
