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. 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 about the search for answers — and escape.
