The Origin of SpeciesBook - 2008
"Set in the 1980's, this is the story of thirty-something Alex, a Montreal-based academic plagued by a gnawing sense that he's a fraud in all aspects of life, from his professional ambitions to his romantic involvements. Underlying his malaise is a haunting experience in the Galapagos Islands, the after-effects of which threaten to undo him. Then fate casts Esther in his path, a disarmingly vibrant and wilful young woman who may, however, be dying before his eyes" - - inside front cover.
