In The Sunday Book, Michael Trussler uses memoir to excavate and explore a range of inner lives, all lived at different speeds. With essays touching on the meaning of the Holocaust in the twenty-first century to confronting the complexities of being a parent in the Anthropocene, Trussler’s interconnected essays are united by his lived experience with a rare learning disability. The Sunday Book freshly engages with fundamental existential problems such as free will and contingency, all the while providing an original take on our contemporary moment.
Praise for The Sunday Book:
“The Sunday Book is a beautifully written, acutely observed memoir that gives us an unflinching glimpse into one man’s journey through middle-age, depression, anxiety and modern life. A poignant examination of aging and loss that encompasses time, metaphysics and art.”— Don Gillmor and Alexandra Shimo, 2020 Saskatchewan Writers Guild competition for nonfiction citation
