A Novella by

From the author of the Scotiabank Giller Prize shortlisted novel Going Home Again comes a darkly comic story about a man whose childhood tic becomes a habit that changes his life.

Harold Pittman, a speech therapist, has a bad habit that goes way back. He holds his tongue between his teeth when he's stressed or exercising. It's something he's able to hide from the world, until the accident that threatens his relationship with the aspiring actress who speaks in a Shirley Temple voice and won't let anything come between her and her dreams. In a story about human frailty and second chances, Dennis Bock explores the nature of love, ambition, and identity with the sympathetic intelligence that prompted the Globe and Mail to declare him Canada's "next great novelist."
