Winner of the Governor General’s Literary Award with over 10,000 copies sold.
Lisa is a young girl who wants to free herself from the constraints of modern life. Her only problem is that she doesn’t have a dime to her name. Her best friend, a computer hacker trying to manipulate international marine traffic, might just have the solution for her: living and traveling as a stowaway in a shipping container. But in this day and age, a phantom shipping container arouses suspicion. Soon, an RCMP agent is hot on Lisa’s trail. Gravitating around these characters, are a 70-year-old man who is missing a screw, a bipolar and compulsive shopper, and six budgies. Demonstrating a wild imagination and sparkling erudition, Nicolas Dickner is in top form. Considered a unique writer in both Québec and beyond, he is part of an elaborate family tree whose branches include Kurt Vonnegut, Philip K. Dick, William Gibson, Nick Hornby, and Haruki Murakami.
