Andy Brown's first novel follows a sibling relationship told
through vignettes, each story centred around the removal of a mole.
From this premise, Brown's novel expands the associations of moles
from skin disease, to the burrowing animal, to secret societies and
espionage, to tell the story of familial dysfunction,
culture-jamming, eco-terrorism, and regret in the lives of young
adults in the 1990s. Moving from the urban decay of Montreal to the
beaches of Vancouver and back, and reflecting on diverse cultural
and historical phenomena -- BMX racing, The Fantastic Four, bush
parties, lifeguard obsessions, and the Montreal Ice Storm -- 'The
Mole Chronicles' is an engaging and innovative debut novel.
