'What is the meaning of a deluded life?' So begins Light, Time, and Gravity, a novel told from the perspective of a suicidal English professor, recalling his experiences as a seventeen-year-old working on a Southwestern Ontario tobacco farm in the summer of 1984. Part essay, part narrative, part present, part history, Light, Time, and Gravity is a kind of Notes from the Canadian Underground, a portrait of our culture's abject failure to create a genuine Canadian identity, as well as a stinging indictment of Canada's literary and intellectual elites.
