Even in death, he said, the novella's power would bind us together, all of us who had read it, appealing as it did equally to our emotions and our intellects.

Intense and densely layered, Involuntary Bliss is the latest intriguing story from the award-winning young Canadian writer Devon Code. Situated in modern-day Montr#65533;al during a weekend in late August, two young men attempt to restore their friendship.

From the streets of Montr#65533;al's Plateau to the mountainous hillsides of Machu Picchu and beyond, this high-spirited picaresque investigates themes of mortality, idealism, and transgressive art from the perspective of two young men, who have met up in modern-day Montr#65533;al during a weekend in late August in an attempt to restore their friendship.

Readers of literary fiction who appreciate stylistically sophisticated and edgy novels will happily lose themselves in this circuitous story that combines the dark humor and elements of psychological compulsion of Thomas Bernhard and Roberto Bola#65533;o with the eroticism, narrative momentum and intimations of violence in the novels of Haruki Murakami.
