Three Deaths is acclaimed writer Josip Novakovich's first exclusively Canadian edition of his writing. This elegant edition works as a triptych consisting of three distinct genres: a personal essay, a short story, and a classic tale. All three exquisite texts concern the primary theme of death and are rendered with Novakovich's renowned and uncanny sense of syntax and narrative. Three Deaths is at once dark and poignant, fierce and tender, and is both the perfect introduction to the works of Novakovich and the ideal collector's edition for longtime fans.

The contents of Three Deaths do, in places, overlap. In such a slim book, these repetitions are disappointing...Like many serious treatments of mortality, Novakovich’s remarkable book asks us to set aside our earthly vanities and delight fully in life’s absurd beauty.Read Full Review of Three Deaths | See more reviews from National Post arts
