Evie of the Deepthorn


A novel about small towns, art, and loneliness.

What is Evie of the Deepthorn?

It’s a cult Canadian movie that Kent looks to for inspiration as he struggles to understand the death of his brother in Durham, a small town light years from Toronto. It’s a fantasy novel that Sarah wrestles with as she navigates a traumatic childhood and comes to terms with her failures as an adult. It’s a poem that motivates Reza to go on a pilgrimage from which he will not return unscathed.

Shifting and sometimes contradictory, Evie of the Deepthorn is a novel about the search for answers — and escape.
