About this book

Communion

Gibson

Exclusively available from Anansi Digital, Communion is one of the lost, great works by a Canadian literary titan.

Originally published in 1971, Communion continues the story of Felix Oswald that began in Five Legs. We meet Felix Oswald again, a self-mocking and obsessed hero, a voyeur, and all-time loser, after he graduates from school and accepts a job as a part-time veterinarian’s assistant.

A groundbreaking work of experimental fiction, Communion is a must-read for lovers of Canadian literature.

Featuring an introduction by Sean Kane
