Even That Wildest Hope

Even That Wildest Hope is a novel by Seyward Goodhand.

Seyward Goodhand

Even That Wildest Hope bursts with vibrant, otherworldly characters — wax girls and gods-among-men, artists on opposite sides of a war, aimless plutocrats and anarchist urchins — who are sometimes wondrous, often grotesque, and always driven by passions and yearnings common to us all. Each story is an untamed territory unto itself: where characters are both victims and predators, the settings are antique and futuristic, and where our intimacies — with friends, lovers, enemies, and even our food — tytreveal a deeply human desire for beauty and abjection. (From Invisible Publishing)

Evan That Wildest Hope is available in Sept. 2019.

Seyward Goodhand is a writer and PhD student at the University of Toronto. Her stories have appeared in publications like Riddle Fence, and PRISM InternationalEven That Wildest Hope  is her first novel.
