Synapses depicts a vast society of differing psyches, all unique, idiosyncratic, and interconnected. Simon Brousseau’s beautifully crafted literary snapshots, each written in a single, stylistically accomplished sentence and featuring a different character, will linger with readers.

Synapses will integrate into your own neural pathways, inviting you to join the network of humanity the book creates.

Short-listed 2019 Governor General's Award for Translation
