OH MY GOD, CANADA, WHAT THE FUCK
After five years buried like a mole amid the decaying maps and manuscripts of an historical institute, Lou is given a welcome field assignment: to catalogue a nineteenth-century library, improbably located in an octagonal house on a remote island in northern Ontario. Eager to reconstruct the estate’s curious history, she is unprepared for her discovery that the island has one other inhabitant: a bear.
Lou’s imagination is soon overtaken by the estate’s historical occupants, whose fascination with bear lore becomes her own. Irresistibly, Lou is led along a path of emotional and sexual self-discovery, as she explores the limits of her own animal nature through her bizarre and healing relationship with the bear.
Remember when I was studying Canadian literature and this happened…
Anyone who doesn’t know Canada’s rich history of erotic literature clearly needs to educate themselves on the history of Harlequin romance novels.
I always love when people find out about Bear. It’s hilarious.
