Dead White Males

Who is Vera A. Utall? Why has she entwined celebrity Nick Maggot and legendary literary genius Orville Goner in her sexual web? Soft-boiled private eye (and hairdresser) David Dennings is hired to track the vanished siren. Through a hallucinatory labyrinth only Ann Diamond could have created, the trail leads him to the nefarious Dead White Males.

Raymond Chandler and Philip K. Dick meet Virginia Woolf in this unconventional whodunit in which Dennings' very life depends on finding the solution that lies buried within an elusive master's thesis. Will he make it before the hourglass runs out?

Critical Comment

“If you're tired of pretentious Canadian literary experiences and want a good story that keeps you laughing, Ann Diamond’s Dead White Males is a heartening change.”

— James Moran, July 2002

“The plot moves quickly between Canada and South America and between reality and whatever else is out there, so that the only thing the reader can do is let go and be taken along, laughing all the way.”

— Patty Osborne, GEIST, spring 2001

“[Dead White Males]is nutty, paranoid, messy and a great deal of fun. A must for Ann Diamond fans.”

— The Montreal Gazette

“Whether they fight their battles in the fantastic or realistic world, Diamond's women seem to use their involvement with brutish, insensitive men as acts of defiance....”

— Mary Frances Hill, Books in Canada

Dead White Males is a paean to postmodernism, with its elaborate pastiche of texts, narrators, hallucinatory fragments, dream visions, and echoic episodes...”

— Canadian Literature, 2003
