Ticknor: A Novel by Sheila Heti

A small masterpiece (National Post)-- An utterly original first novel from a rising international star On a cold, rainy night, an aging bachelor named George Ticknor prepares to visit his childhood friend Prescott, now one of the leading intellectual lights of their generation. Reviewing a life of petty humiliations, and his friend s brilliant career, Ticknor sets out for the dinner party-- a party at which he d just as soon never arrive. Distantly inspired by the real-life friendship between the great historian William Hickling Prescott and his biographer, Ticknor is a witty, fantastical study in resentment. It recalls such modern masterpieces of obsession as Thomas Bernhard s The Loser and Nicholson Baker s The Mezzanine and announces the arrival of a charming and original novelist, one whose stories have already earned her a passionate international following. A perceptive act of ventriloquism, [Ticknor] rewards thought and rereading, and offers a finely cadenced voice, intelligence and . . . moody beauty. -- Catherine Bush, The Globe and Mail Confoundedly strange [and] fascinating. -- Nicholas Dinka, Quill & Quire
