'The Gilded Beaver by Anonymous'


Winner of the Hamilton Arts Council 'Best Fiction Award' in 1999, beating out other entries from Random House Canada, M&S, and Knopf Canada ...
‘THE GILDED BEAVER BY ANONYMOUS'

Critical Reviews:

" ... mystery surrounds this erotically charged novel ... the ABC's of Canadian fine furniture design and production ... " Ottawa Citizen

"... read this really extra-ordinary work with great interest ... this novel is very special ..." - Dr.B. Heinzius, Bertelsmann, AG, Munich

" ... like good wine - rich, complex, pleasingly acerbic ... a dance of intellect & eros that expertly unfolds ... and closes with panache..." - Jim Bartley, Globe & Mail, Toronto

"... a psycho-sexual tug of war in the world of design" - Spring Book Review, Globe & Mail, Toronto

"... Novels about the relationship between two brothers, mothers and sons, husbands and wives, or fathers and daughters are common. But the relationship between a fine furniture designer and an imperious client can be just as fraught with tension, drama, comedy, incomprehension and hurt as any family relationship, and this novel proves it. ... Why the 'anonymity'? Because, quotes the author, 'This is a true story'..." - Toronto Star
