Nightmarker by Meredith Quartermain

Book Description

There's an automatic impulse within the human species, the way its cities spring up all over the planet just as ant colonies do. Humans reproduce by way of towns and metropolises, replicating the bee-dances of the Romans, Greeks, and Babylonians, unconsciously invoking rituals of the past in tranceful reveries of the future. In expeditions to City Hall, the police station, the sugar refinery, and the courthouse, Nightmarker explores the human city as an animal behaviour, a museum, and a dream of modernity. It also records the journey of Geo, an earth-geist, who struggles to comprehend humanity's siege of Earth while enabling us to examine the human condition, bound as it is by the drive to evolve, multiply, and simply exist.

Author Biography - Meredith Quartermain

At age 11, Meredith Quartermain left her home in Toronto and drove with her family across Canada to the tiny, one-time silver boom community of Argenta, British Columbia. While living there she developed the strong sense of place that she carried with her throughout her studies at the University of British Columbia, and into every piece of writing since. In 1983 she was commissioned to write a history of York House School, thus beginning her exploration of Vancouver archival materials and pioneer narratives. Quartermain is the author of a number of books, and the founder of a literary web site called The News as well as the small literary press Nomados.
