Hovering World

A day-in-the-life novel – but what a day, what a life! Peter Dubé’s first novel, Hovering World, moves effortlessly from sunlight to midnight and far beyond, in passages that are by turns haunting and haunted, surreal and erotic. The arrival of a photo of an angel sets off a quest of sorts, and along the way we encounter a general named Disarray, essays in art theory, moments of passionate obsession in both the streets of the city and the “opaque corridors” of a gay sauna.

Hovering World is queer in all the best senses of the word – non-conformist, eccentric, dissenting, crazed, aberrant and, of course, invaluable. An unforgettable debut.

—Will Aitken, author of Realia


Critical Comment

“Dubé easily conveys not only the awe and anxiety that goes with a spiritual awakening, but also the futility of trying to contain that awakening, or even convey it, within the margins of a photograph, or the pages of a book.”

— Sue McCluskey, This Magazine, 2003

“Dubé offers the reader a full spectrum of angels, fallen and otherwise.”

— Poppy Wilkinson, Montreal Review of Books, 2003
